CHICAGO: Dr. Sudhakar Jonnalgadda, President of American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (APPI) urged members and the general public to step up and donate generously as India,  is facing one of the most serious health crisis in decades.

“This is the time for immediate AAPI action. As doctors, we all share a visceral urge to do something about it’. We have located a source manufacturer that supplies Oxygen concentrators each of which can save several lives in India. The cost of each unit is around $500.00. The Indian Embassy and Consulates have been extremely helpful, and will assist in the rapid shipping and customs regulations of these lifesaving units” said Dr. Jonnalagadda

“AAPI with the collaboration of numerous members/Chapters has placed orders for securing and delivering oxygen concentrators for 200 units to be delivered direct to hospitals in India with the help of SEWA  International, a reliable non-profit organization”

Dr. Anupama Gotimukula, President-Elect, who is leading the AAPI Initiative to help and support plans to help the physicians and the people in India, at the conclusion of the brain storming session with hundreds of AAPI members, said: “Thank you and it was good to listen to every  physician from US and India how to execute our professional services to patients in India.”

Summarizing the deliberations, Dr. Gotimukula said: 1. Groups of physicians will form smaller groups with Indian physicians in your own state/region, and do it yourselves in your own language, and can use the model that are already in place for Tele-Consult. The Google sheet prepared by AAPI has the list of volunteers and we will update it regularly. 2. We have 3-Telehealth platforms that have been identified and it is a free service to physicians from India/US and patients; 1.; 2.; and, 3. Apps are available on iOS and Android.
