Washington, Aug 5 (Agency)
Bollywood singer Shreya Ghoshal is joining an American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) sponsored nine-city spectacular musical programme combined with educational and networking opportunities across the United States.
The programme has been organised with the objective of bringing continuing medical education (CME) and non-CME sponsored medical lectures, exhibits, gala dinner, community outreach talks and lively musical nite in each of the nine cities, AAPI said.
The programme starts with the first performance on Sep 21 in Charlotte, North Carolina with the grand finale on Oct 7 in San Jose, California.
Other performances will be in New York Sep 22; Columbus, Ohio Sep 23;
Orlando, Florida Sep 28; Houston, Texas Sep 29; Atlanta, Georgia Sep 30; Washington DC Oct 5; and Dallas, Texas Oct 6.
"It all began with the idea of strengthening the relationship between the AAPI chapters and national office," says Dr. Narendra Kumar, President of AAPI.
The Ssminars and workshops will be led by accomplished faculty of leading cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and psychiatrists.
Each of the nine medical educational programmes is expected to have an audience of 250-400 physicians, which will be followed by annual gala event and entertainment.
The AAPI Charitable Foundation, which is committed to serve the poorest of the poor in remote areas of India and the US,currently oversees 17 clinics in as many states in India.
Moving forward, the Foundation wants to "fulfil our organization's goal of supporting at least one clinic in each Indian State," said Foundation Nick Nipan Shroff.
