Welcome to NWI Indian Medical Association

Dear Friends and colleagues,

I am truly honored to start my term as president of Northwest Indiana Indian Medical Association. It gives me a great pleasure as well as sense of responsibility.

As we aspire to expand our reach, we are eager to welcome new members in our organization. We envision our association as a vibrant community of healthcare professionals, working together for a common cause that is the well-being of our community.

Together, let’s embark on a journey of growth, collaboration, and success. Our shared commitment will drive positive change and elevate our organization to new heights.

The NWI IMA continues to do educational activities through the CME health at our hall and other community outreach activities through our members.

The organization was founded in July 1983, and since that time has grown significantly within 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 the commitment talk to this organization and encourage nonmembers to join our organization.
