AAPI President Dr. Narendra Kumar Honored With PravasiBharatiyaSamman

“I am humbled and honored by this great honor bestowed on me today,” Dr. Narendra Kumar, President of American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) said, soon after receiving the PravasiBharatiyaSamman, the Government of India's highest civilian honor for non-resident Indians in Kochi, India on January 9th, 2013 during the 11th annual ParvasiBharatiyaDiwas. “I consider this award as the recognition of the achievements and contributions of 100,000 physicians of Indian origin in the United States, whom I represent as its sitting president,” Dr. Kumar added.

Pranab Mukherjee, President of India, conferred this highest honor on Dr. Kumar and eight others from the Resident Indians from across the globe. Dr. Kumar received the award for his achievements in the field of medicine, community service, global leadership and contributions to building bridges between India and the United States.


Dr. Narendra Kumar: AAPI President
Committed to Restoring AAPI’s Image, Uniting Members & Giving Back to the Society

In June 2012, soon after taking over as the president of the prestigious American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) during its recent 30th annual Convention in Long Beach, CA, Dr. Narendra Kumar told his fellow physicians: “We will put all our energy in a positive direction in order to restore AAPI’s image, improve financial health, and bring unity, integrity and stability to our organization.”

In less than six months, Dr. Kumar and his extraordinarily committed team have worked hard to fulfill those prophetic words. AAPI today is more united than ever, financially stable, expanding steadily and is on the right path.

Being a leader of an umbrella organization representing over 130 member associations nationwide, and having a total membership of over nearly 100,000 physicians and fellows of Indian origin, Dr. Kumar has ascended to prominence with his decades of hard work and dedication to the organization and the people it is committed to serve. As a Regional Director of AAPI, Dr. Kumar had attended almost all the local AAPI chapter meetings in his region in an attempt to serve as a liaison between the local chapters and the national organization, and he has been instrumental in recruiting hundreds of new AAPI patron members to AAPI.
