Our Team

Time for action. AAPI on the move. Be a part of it.


AAPI physicians represent only 10% of all physicians in the United States but service approximately 30% of the US patient population.


Many have fostered personal relationships with members of Congress (as well as the  highest levels of Government in India) that are invaluable assets to influencing legislation and insuring appropriate, patient-focused healthcare reform.
