AAPI Annual Convention 2017
President - Chair Message


Dear AAPI Members:


It’s very great joy that we want to invite you all to come and be part of the 35th annual American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) Convention 2017 to be held at Harrah’s Resort in the beautiful Atlantic City in New Jersey from June 21 – 25, 2017.


Physicians of Indian Origin in the United States are reputed to be leading health care providers, holding crucial positions in various hospitals and health care facilities around the nation and the world.


Known to be a leading ethnic medical organization that represents nearly 100,000 physicians and fellows of Indian Origin in the US, and being their voice and providing a forum to its members to collectively work together to meet their diverse needs, AAPI members are proud to contribute to the wellbeing of their motherland India and their adopted land, the United States. The convention is forum to network, share knowledge and thoughts, and thus, enrich one another, and rededicate ourselves for the health and wellbeing of all peoples of the world.


The convention is expected to be addressed by the US Governors, Senators, Congressmen, prominent Indian politicians, by senior world leaders, Nobel Laureates, and celebrities from the Hollywood and Bollywood world.


We in New York/New Jersey, have been working hard to make the AAPI Convention of 2017 rewarding and memorable for all with Continuing Education Meetings, National and India based Health Policy Forums, Youth Seminars, New Physician and Resident Student meetings. Physicians attending this convention will benefit not only from cutting edge CME, but also the camaraderie of their Alumni groups and share in our common heritage. Social events are all being planned meticulously so that maximum benefit can be accomplished.


The Exhibit Hall, with its unique design and boot layout, will be the hub for several programs throughout the convention days. Breakfast, pavilions for alliance focusing on healthy living, AAPI Charitable Foundation to showcase the rural health clinics in India, and a stage for lectures, demonstrations, fashion show and many other interesting activities are all designed to keep attendees in the Exhibit Hall.


In the Exhibit Hall, you will have the opportunity to hold non-CME presentations and ‘Product Theatres’. There will be no concurrent activities, including CME programs, to maximize attendance at your events. We look forward to seeing you in New Jersey!
