Indian American physicians’ meet to develop health policy agendas and legislative priorities.
American association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), the largest ethnic medical association in the US, plans to hold its 39th annual convention and scientific assembly from July 2 to 5 in Atlanta, Georgia.
To be held at Omni Atlanta at CNN Center and Georgia World Congress Center, the convention is planned to have limited attendance due to the Covid pandemic for the safety of the participants, AAPI president Dr. Sudhakar Jonnalagadda said.
“Physicians and healthcare professionals from across the country and internationally will convene and participate in the scholarly exchange of medical advances, to develop health policy agendas, and to encourage legislative priorities in the coming year,” he said.
“The annual convention offers extensive academic presentations, recognition of achievements and achievers, and professional networking at the alumni and evening social events,” said Dr. Sajani Shah, chair of AAPI Board of Trustees.
The annual convention this year is being organized by AAPI’s Atlanta Chapter, chaired by Dr. Sreeni Gangasani.
“The convention team is working hard and over time, to provide a delightful three days of events packed with educational CME credits, world-class entertainment, leadership seminars, networking opportunities, exhibits, and more,” Dr. Gangasani said. “This meeting offers a rich educational program featuring the latest scientific research and advances in clinical practice.”
