Welcome to NWI Indian Medical Association

Dear Friends and colleagues,

Starting my term as President of the Northwest Indiana Indian Medical Association gives me great pleasure, as well as a sense of responsibility.

In this day and age, despite the presence of social media, our purpose of existence stands strong.  While social media create connections, NWIIMA creates an even stronger emotional connection based on mutual hardships and joys that we have experienced.

The NWIIMA continues to do educational activities through CME, held at our hall, and other community outreach activities through our members.

The last two years have been trying to say the least. We have endured and thrived these unique challenges under the leadership of our past president Dr Sudhish Chandra. We look forward to making the foundation of organization strong by working together and making our processes self-sustaining.

The organization was founded in July 1983 and since that time has grown significantly with an increasing number of healthcare professionals of Indian origin calling our region home. Currently we have around 400 physicians and allied health professionals in Northwest Indiana. I would like to personally thank each and every member for their commitment to this organization, and encourage non-members to join our organization’s membership.

NWIIMA is an assortment of these diverse Indian customs, as is apparent by the variety of festivals we celebrate with the Indian American Cultural Center. Come and enjoy with us – we encourage you to learn more about the many things that make India unique.
