AAPIOS is a non profit organization and a sub chapter of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin.

Message from the president

The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin – Sleep was formed six years ago to act as a forum to exchange ideas and improve the awareness of sleep disorders in the United States and India. The organization initially focused on the Asian-Indian population because OSA affects the South Asian population at a similar rate to the U.S. despite lower rates of obesity. There are about two thousand physicians of Indian origin who practice Sleep Medicine in the United States. Our immediate past president, Dr. Anuj Chandra has been instrumental in taking AAPIOS to new heights and we look welcome our new president, Dr Umakanth Khatwa, and the new board member Dr. Deepak Sreevastava to the executive committee.
