Dear APPNA Family:
First of all, I congratulate Dr. Shahid Yaqoob for completing his 2-year tenure successfully as APPNA-AZ President 2020-2021. I am honoured to serve as the APPNA-AZ president for 2022 and hope to continue getting full support from the community during this arduous road of the Pandemic. As we all know, Physicians and healthcare workers have been on the front lines of this COVID-19 Pandemic’s serious complications for over 2 years now.
Now We appear to be heading into a fourth COVID-19 surge, with rising cases across our communities and hospitals. Unlike previous surges, we finally have free, widely available, highly effective, and safe vaccines to protect you and your family. More than 370 million doses have been administered in the United States with excellent safety.
There is much to be achieved as we unfold the mystery of the COVID-19 Pandemic. I look forward to working with you through the remainder of this year with the help and support of the Executive Committee of 2022. (Dr. Zubair Quraishi as General Secretary and Dr. Navaid A Khan as Treasurer)
Let’s hope 2022 will be a better year for all of us. Let’s have hand-in-hand together to continue fighting against this Pandemic phase.
We need to ensure that APPNA-AZ is an organization that will continue to deliver Public Awareness under scientific techniques and will do its best to fulfill the needs of our community in all endeavours.
We will continue to help young medical graduates from our motherland and local graduates here who are committed to playing individual roles for the betterment of our American nation.
Last but most important, I am thankful to my wife, Asma, and daughter, Zoya, for allowing me to serve on this vital task.
Mashood Qadri, MD
