President’s Message

I am entrusted with this responsibility for the period 2022-2023. I am grateful to Marium Husain for leading WAPPNA in her usual dynamic style for the last 2 years. WAPPNA has flourished under her tenure. The pandemic has put a damper on our events since 2020 but we have been able to start our mental health awareness program starting the end of last year. We shall continue this theme for this year as well as there is an enormous need to do so. The incidence of depression has increased many folds particularly with the advent of Covid 19 and our South Asian community is no exception. We are fortunate to have excellent advocates who are leading the path towards this end. WAPPNA is always looking to add new members as an organization is as vibrant as its members. Our vision continues to support women empowerment, social justice and awareness of mental and physical health. We as physicians owe it to ourselves and the society at large.
