MESSAGE FROM THE CONVENTION CHAIR
DR. MEHER MEDAVARAM
Welcome To The Convention
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the 38th Annual American Association of Physicians of Indian origin (AAPI) Annual Convention and Scientific Sessions will be held in Chicago from June 24-28, 2020. The venue is the fabulous Donald Stephens Convention Center. This world class facility will afford an intimate setting that will facilitate our ability to convey cutting-edge research and CME, promote business relationships, and display ethnic items. Chicago is one of the world’s favorite destinations for families and conventions and so we are expecting a record crowd to attend this convention. Chicago also offers World Champion sports teams, historic Navy Pier with stunning lakeside shops and venues, 22 Michelin starred restaurants including 3-star Alinea, frequently named best restaurant in the world, and many more places to see and visit.
Exhibitors and Corporate Partners will remain our priority as we work together to provide a world-class forum for increased interactions between physicians, sponsors, exhibitors, and all other attendees. The unique layout of the Exhibit Hall will promote positive discourse between all and various planned activities will ensure their visitation to the Exhibit Hall and maximize attendance. The ease with which members and attendees can move between the Exhibit Hall, conference and ballrooms, and their hotel rooms will ensure maximum attendance and visibility for Sponsors and Exhibitors. Given that a physician of Indian origin sees every 7th patient in this country and every 5th patient in rural and inner city Illinois, the reach and influence of AAPI members goes well beyond the convention.
We have convened a fantastic group of people to meet the needs of the 2020 convention and are very excited about next year. Please reach out to any one of the representatives from the Chicago team with questions or comments. Please call the AAPI office for further information.
