About Indo-US Global Health Summit
This International health care summit is a progressive transformation from the first Indo-US Healthcare Summit launched by AAPI USA in 2007. Since then, AAPI has organized six Indo - US/Global Healthcare Submits and developed strategic alliances with various organizations.
The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) was formed to address a need for cohesive action on the part of physicians, dentists and other medical scientists, of Indian origin, residing in the United States of America. The AAPI was also formed to maintain the identity of this group of people, to provide a forum for scientific, educational, cultural, and charitable interaction among its members.
