The pandemic has impacted all aspects of human life and the past three years have been challenging to everyone, particularly to those who are assigned with the responsibility of caring for the sick, even as hundreds of millions are affected by the pandemic. Physicians and other health professionals on the front lines of Covid-19 care have experienced so many unknown challenges during the pandemic. They’ve also put their own health and the well-being of their families on the line to provide care.
“At this critical juncture in human history, AAPI, the largest ethnic medical organization in the country is focusing on themes such as how to take care of self and find satisfaction and happiness in the challenging situations they are in while serving hundreds of patients every day of their dedicated and noble profession,” Dr. Anjana Samadder, President-Elect of AAPI said.
Dr. Sumul Rawal, Treasurer of AAPI said, “Exhibitors and Corporate Partners will remain our top priority as we work together to provide a world-class forum for increased interactions between sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees. The ease with which attendees can move between the exhibit hall, conference and ballrooms, and their hotel rooms will ensure maximum attendance and visibility for sponsors and exhibitors.”
