President's Message

Greetings from the Peach State

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the 37th Annual American Association of Physicians of Indian origin (AAPI) Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly will be held in Atlanta from July 3 to 7, 2019. The venue is the fabulous Omni Atlanta at CNN Center and Georgia World Congress Center. This world-class facility will afford an intimate setting that will facilitate our ability to convoy cutting-edge research and CME, promote business relationships, and display ethnic items. Atlanta is one of the world's favorite destinations for families and conventions and so we are expecting a record crowd to attend this convention. Atlanta also offers the Southern hospitality, home of Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Delta Airlines, CNN, football hall of fame, Stone Mountain and many more to see and visit.

Exhibitors and Corporate Partners will remain our priority as we work together to provide a world-class forum for increased interactions between physicians, sponsors, exhibitors, and all other attendees. The unique layout of the Exhibit Hall will promote positive discourse between all and various planned activities will ensure their visitation to the Exhibit Hall and maximize attendance. The ease with which members and attendees can move between the Exhibit Hall, conference and ballrooms, and their hotel rooms will ensure maximum attendance and visibility for Sponsors and Exhibitors. Given that a physician of Indian origin seas every 7th patient in this country and every 5th patient in rural and inner city Georgia, the reach and influence of AAPI members goes well beyond the convention.

We have convened a fantastic group of people to meet the needs of the 2019 convention and are very excited about next year. Please reach out to any one of the representatives from the Atlanta team with questions or comments. Please visit for more details or call the AAPI office for further information.

See you in Atlanta!
