National Convention Chair

It is my honor to welcome all the delegates and guests to the 36th annual American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin National Convention in Columbus, Ohio.

For decades, AAPI has served as a forum to facilitate and enable Indian American physicians to excel in patient care, teaching, and research and to pursue their aspirations in professional and community affairs.

The convention team has worked incredibly hard to provide a delightful 4 days of events packed with educational CME credits, world-class entertainment, leadership seminars, networking opportunities, exhibits, and more.

This meeting offers a rich educational program featuring the latest scientific research and advances in clinical practice. In addition, physicians and healthcare professionals from across the country will convene to develop health policy agendas and encourage legislative priorities for the upcoming year.

Guests will be treated to true Midwestern hospitality in one of the country’s fastest growing cities—bustling with restaurants, night life, shopping and more.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family and thank you for your support in making this convention a great success.
