The American Association of Physicians of Indian origin (AAPI) will be hosting a nine-city tour for Bollywood singer Sukhwinder Singh, who will be accompanied by the first lady of Maharashtra Amruta Fadnavis, called Jai Ho Musical Dhamaka.
The tour is to take place this spring, starting on Friday, May 10 in the cities of Columbus, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; Washington D.C.; Charlotte, North Carolina; New Jersey; Dallas, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; San Jose, California and Los Angeles, California.
AAPI will combine the musical program with educational and networking opportunities for its members, supporters and sponsors, and will organize CME and non-CME sponsored medical lectures, exhibits, Gala Dinner and community outreach talks.
“Following the past successes of multi-city musical tours organized by AAPI, I am inspired by the concept and how such events have helped in strengthening the relationship between the AAPI Chapters and national office, in addition to help raise funds for the many noble programs for AAPI and the local chapters,” Dr. Naresh Parikh, the President of AAPI, is quoted saying in a press release, adding that “a major objective of this program is to bring together various local chapters.”
Proceeds from the tour will support some of the noble initiatives that AAPI focuses on including the rapidly growing problem of cardiovascular diseases in south Asians and minorities living in the United States and Lymphoma & Leukemia in India.
