PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Fellow AAPIO members, ladies, gentlemen, girls, and boys,

First, I would like to thank the outgoing president Dr. Baig and his team for their excellent accomplishments and contribution to AAPIO during the past year 2014-2015.

Next, please permit me to thank everyone of you who has been responsible for instituting me as president of AAPIO along with my eminent team of office bearers for the ensuing year.

My team and I are excited, ready, and able to serve AAPIO with a highly innovative plan.

DID I SAY INNOVATIVE? 

After all, we have:

  • Highly innovative persons in all spheres of our life and living
  • We have persons with Contagiously entrepreneurial with start-up mentality, I mean positively
  • We have persons who are Eminently mentoring and producing great minds
  • We have persons who are Consciously competent about “Well-Being’?

Ingrained with “Innovative Mind Set”, my team and I along with your active involvement and support would like to contribute three critical platforms or portals and leave this as a highly leveragable legacy for AAPIO.  We are in the process of creating, establishing, and operating:

  • A Physician-Entrepreneur Platform (PEP)
  • Community Well-Being Platform (CWP)
  • Emerging Leaders Platform (ELP)
Physician-Entrepreneur Platform (or Portal)

Here is a sample outline of what is PEP, who is involved and how:

What is PEP?

  • A platform or stage to catapult or act as a catalyst
  • Physicians and silicon valley entrepreneurs ‘meet up’
  • Application of leading thoughts to provision:
    • Smartest hi-tech tools for the physicians
    • Better treatment protocols
    • Effective EHR software

Who is involved?

  • Physicians who:
    • Dare and think ‘out of the box’
      • Care to establish themselves well with honour
      • Expand their comfort zone to greater and broader horizons
      • Leverage their tremendous potential with world-leading resources that silicon valley offers (compared to India)

How would you involve?

  • Specify your interest or areas of contribution
  • Specify your involvement as a mentor, guide, or entrepreneur

Community Well-Being Platform (CWP)

What is CWP?

  • A platform or stage to encourage volunteerism or charitable health care assistance
  • Creation of a data base of availability of free health care assistance (including diagnostics and treatment) around silicon valley
  • A tactical ‘match up’ of available physicians and required health care need
  • To reinstate one of the nearly lost values of AAPIO – participation in health clinics and/or melas
  • Setting up an emergency relief fund to help fund disasters around the world

Who is involved?

  • Needy patients (not necessarily the Indian diaspora)
  • Physicians who:
    • Spare or budget their charitable availability
      • Care to extend their not for profit attitude
      • Have no borders or barriers to reach out (independent of their mother-ship organization)

How would you involve?

  • Register on CWP
  • Specify your specialty or availability of care assistance
  • Specify number of hours, days and place of availability
  • Specify approximate value add in dollars per hour (to quantify assistance provided for your own and AAPIO metric creation
Emerging Leaders Platform (ELP)

What is ELP?

  • A platform, stage to encourage and instil leadership qualities and capabilities in physicians and/or their kids or family
  • Creation of a data base of availability of mentoring physicians and AAPIO’s connectivity with voluntary organizations
  • A ‘match up’ of mentor-mentee with committed agreement
  • Schedule regular lectures by AAPIO physicians at neighbourhood high schools at their level

Who is involved?

    • Physicians and kids/Family who yearn to acquire leadership qualities or become leaders
    • Physicians who have a passion to mentor and share their experiences (Do’s and Don’ts)
    • Organizations that offer mentoring programs
    • Neighbourhood schools interested to avail AAPIO services (of doctors who are willing to share their subject matter expertise etc..)

How would you involve?

  • Register on ELP
  • Specify your specialty or availability of mentoring assistance

  • Specify number of hours, days and place of availability
  • Specify approximate value add in dollars per hour (to quantify assistance provided for your own and AAPIO metric creation

You just got a very high level view of the proposed new Mind Set for AAPIO physicians and their families in the current year.

So, please leverage this golden opportunity.  With open hands and heart my team and I invite you to involve and contribute to your heart’s content, peace, and joy.  Please come and join us, let us have an eventful blast this year.

THANK YOU!
