Ahmed Mehdi Malik, MD
KEMCAANA President 2015
On behalf of KEMCAANA, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to Lahore for APPNA/KEMCAANA’s 36th annual winter meeting, being held in collaboration with KEMU’s 35th scientific seminar. We are very proud of the accomplishments of current APPNA President Dr. Mubashar Rana who is one of our own. We hope you enjoy the program we have put together for you and take full advantage of everything this great city has to offer. I will especially like to acknowledge and thank VC KEMU Dr. Fasial Masud, Professor Dr. Irshad Hussain and the host committee, for their hospitality and hard work in organizing this event.
APPNA and KEMU have put together an excellent scientific program for this meeting, which includes research abstracts, lectures and hands on workshops by distinguished faculty from Pakistan and USA. Ihope this is a mutually beneficial exercise, where we learn from each other.
Ever since I became an active member of KEMCAANA, I have been inspired by the great spirit of camaraderie, mutual assistance and charitable giving that exemplifies this organization. I am very proud of the way KEMCOLIANS are contributing to their communities in US, but even prouder of the way our members give back to their alma mater and to the people of Pakistan. Many of our activities over the years are very familiar to you, but much more is being done by individuals who contribute in countless ways without any desire for public acclaim or recognition. All this is in the best tradition of King Edward and it is my earnest desire as President to promote this spirit above all else.
Thank you all for attending and making this meeting a success by gracing it with your presence. I hope you have a productive and enjoyable time in Lahore. I invite you all to attend our annual KEMCAANA retreat in Las Vegas from March 5-7, 2016 and our annual summer meeting in Washington DC in August of 2016.
