AAPIO is a phenomenal and dynamic organization with a wonderful mission encompassing education, community service and social networking for health professionals.

I have attended many educational events and have made lots of great friends due to my involvement with AAPIO. AAPIO supports me in my goals of promoting health and wellness in the community and I look forward to contributing further to its mission.

I was president of AAPIO in 2002-2003, and have been involved since then. It is a great organization, and brings us all together - Lets work on getting more members, and increase our visibility in the community.

I hope to stay involved and encourage all of you to do the same!!
