Come summer and over 2,500 physicians, delegates, researchers, medical students and academicians of Indian origin in the US, would converge to the windy city of Chicago.
The annual convention of The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) set to take place in the city from June 24 to 28 would once again testify to Indian Americans’ great contributions in the field of science and medicine.
To be held at famous Chicago landmark, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center this year, the annual convention is a much-awaited event for the community.
It opens up huge opportunities and networking possibilities and attests to how people of Indian origin have been able to make a significant mark in one of the most developed and sought-after professions in the US.

It would feature some of the top Indian and US leaders as keynote speakers at the convention, according to Dr Bharat Barai, the Chief Senior Adviser.
