NEW DELHI: The Association of American Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) will be holding its annual Global Healthcare Summit (GHS) 2023, a platform for physicians of Indian origin from around the world to come together and share knowledge and expertise, in Visakhapatnam from January 6 to January 8.
According to Dr Ravi Kolli, president of AAPI, “Our organisation has been engaged in harnessing the power of Indian diaspora to bring the most innovative, efficient, cost-effective healthcare solutions to India. The upcoming GHS 2023 with the theme of ‘True and Total Health is the Wellbeing of Mind, Body, and Spirit’ with its focus on mental health, infant and maternal mortality as well as various other medical specialty updates, medical jeopardy, and research poster presentations by medical students, will be a great way to accomplish this mission of AAPI. In addition, advocacy to dismantle the stigma of mental illness and suicide prevention will be the highlight of the programme.”
“This conference will focus on bringing the highest calibre of internationally acclaimed faculty and will develop a very robust agenda in collaboration with leading experts from India. The enhanced focus is on conducting skills enhancement workshops and hands on experience with advanced techniques,” Dr. V. Ranga, chair of AAPI board of trustees, said.
Continuing medical education (CME) sessions with academicians from the United States will offer unique opportunities for local medical staff and healthcare professionals in India. Over 400 physicians are expected to attend the AAPI GHS 2023. Invited guests include professors, heads of educational institutes, deans as well as chairs and members of the National Medical Council Board. Dr Prasad Chalasani, chair of AAPI GHS-USA said, “The scientific programme and workshops of GHS is developed by leading experts and will be led by world-famous physicians on topics relevant to the needs of the time.”
Dr Sampath Shivangi, AAPI legislative committee chair said, “We are collaborating with senior leaders from leading healthcare organisations including pharmaceuticals, device and medical equipment manufacturers and major medical teaching institutions, hospitals, and the ministries of health and external affairs. We hope that many of those attending will collaborate with AAPI with an ultimate goal to provide accessible and affordable high-quality healthcare to people of India.”
The summit will have a research competition for medical students and post graduate students from all over India. AAPI will confer awards of excellence and lifetime achievements. “AAPI will work collaboratively with Global Association of Indian Medical Students and will be conducting the research competition for medical students, residents, fellows, and junior doctors,” said Dr Anjana Samadder, president-elect of AAPI.
“With the changing trends and statistics in healthcare, both in India and US, we are refocusing our mission and vision. AAPI will continue to make a positive meaningful impact on the healthcare delivery system both in the US and in India,” said Dr Satheesh Kathula, vice president of AAPI. The international healthcare summit, launched by AAPI USA in 2007, continues to have the objective of enabling people in India to access high-quality, affordable, and world-class health services. It will be held in collaboration with the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and ministry of health.
