Welcome to the American Academy of Physicians of Indian Origin - Sleep
I would like to thank everybody for having given me this opportunity to serve as the first President of the newly formed American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin Sleep (AAPIOS).
AAPIOS was formed last year to bring together all sleep physicians in the US and India, with one objective in mind: to foster collaboration, friendship and mutual projects amongst ourselves as an extended family across two continents.
Over 100 potential members were present at the first dinner meeting of the AAPIOS held last year in Minneapolis, MN, along with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Since then, many additional physicians have expressed interest to sign up as new members and we hope to enroll many more from now until the second dinner meeting which will be held on Sunday, June 10th coinciding with the APSS annual in Boston. We are aware of over a 1000 physicians of Indian origin who practice Sleep Medicine in the US, and we hope that as many of them as possible will enroll online or at the 2nd annual dinner meeting of AAPIOS in Boston. Please visit the AAPIOS website and click on the section on membership to become new members.
I would like to invite all AAPIOS members to attend our 2nd annual dinner meeting on Sunday June 10th evening between 6:30-9 pm at Kashmir Indian Restaurant in Boston.
