I am honored to be elected the 39th president of the Indian Medical Association of New England (IMANE) by my peers and colleagues.
Since its inception, IMANE held an especially warm place in my heart. I have fond memories of the lifelong friendships that I formed with the children of the members. Now, many of us have grown to follow in the footsteps and professions of these original members. Through these members, we have learned the importance of a commitment to social and political responsibilities. We have also learned how important it is to show how our small but significant physician community can give back to the community that helped raise us.
Throughout its storied history, IMANE has just done that. While our initial meetings were geared toward the never ending search for CME credits, our organization evolved to provide a regular source for healthcare for both our community and the community at large. We have accomplished this goal through outreach with the Waltham and Shrewsbury clinics. We have thrown health fairs on our own and in partnership with other organizations where hundreds, if not thousands of people have been served.
