My name is Ravi Krishnan, a practicing internist on the east side of Cleveland. I am the current president of AIPNO. We would like to give a quick update on AIPNO activities so far planned for the year.
We have multiple events planned for the year. The “Chiraag” Fundraising Dinner will be held on April 9 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. Our committee which includes Dr. Harigopal Balaji (President-Elect), Dr. Umesh Yalavarthy (Immediate Past President), Dr. Rupesh Raina and Dr. Mona Gupta have done an exceptional job of securing Mr. Scott Hamilton as the Chief Guest. Scott Sovell Hamilton (born August 23, 1958), as you know, is a retired American figure skater and Olympic Gold Medalist. He won four consecutive U.S. Championships (1981-1984), four consecutive World Championships (1981-1984) and a Gold Medal in the 1984 Olympics.
We are also privileged to get Dr. Charu Ramanathan, cofounder of Cardio Insight as our Keynote Speaker. We would like your support to make this charity event a success. We also have other events planned including the Annual Dinner & Research Showcase in October (date to be announced soon).
We will keep you updated. Wishing everybody a very happy and prosperous new year.
