President's Message

Assalamualaikum Everyone

Presdient

I am extremely humbled and honored to serve as your President for 2022. I thank each and every one of you for supporting and electing me as your President-Elect in 2020, which is also the testimony of your trust and my commitment to the organization. PPS is one of the most vibrant chapters of APPNA, and we are proud of our achievements in serving our community in the US and in Pakistan.

My involvement with the PPS spans over 19 years serving as a member, counselor, treasurer, secretary, President-Elect, and now your humble President.

As I take the reins of PPS during this continued COVID -19 crisis I would like to make meaningful contributions to the local community, back home in Pakistan, and beyond to make a lasting impact. I would also like the PPS to be the trusted source of leadership within different chapters of APPNA and a source of inspiration to the next generation of youth and young physicians of Pakistani descent and build

collaborative relationships with institutions locally, in Pakistan, and beyond.

In the coming year, I want to continue the spirit of community engagement and enable our youth to encourage their engagement with our society.

I look forward to leading with discipline and respect and together we can achieve greater heights for the future of PPS. We will continue to work together in order to give back to the communities that we belong to while strengthening our ties to our home of Pakistan.

As your new President, I look forward to working under the mentorship of our senior leaders and respectful society members. My vision is to strengthen PPS financially, sustain ongoing projects, and continue to focus on our mission of mentoring, education, healthcare advocacy, service, and charity.

Additionally, I'd like to carry my vision of prioritizing accountability, transparency, and communication in the office as your President by selflessly working for the betterment of PPS.

I and my council are determined to make a lasting, profound impact on the lives of others.

I would like to strengthen us and make us a grassroots-level organization facilitating policy, advocacy, and legislation locally and in Pakistan.

I am confident that the plans we make today will build the foundation for the next generation of PPS.

I would like to forge new and strengthening past relationships for collaboration among healthcare organizations, educational institutions, regulatory authorities, and civic organizations.

I will assure you that I will work hard to continue the legacy of my predecessors. Please join me in strengthening PPS and getting involved to take our society to the next level.

I welcome any suggestions or feedback throughout this entire process as unity and trust are the keys to success.

Lastly, I would like to thank immediate past president Dr. Samina Hijab for her work and dedication to the PPS.

Happy New Year

Pakistan Zindabad
