The five-day APPNA summer conference 2009, held at downtown Marriott San Francisco from July 1st – July 5 th. The conference was to demonstrate the organization’s commitment to charitable, scientific, educational, medical relief activities, both in the USA and Pakistan.

All the projects working in collaboration with APPNA were given time to present their project to the audience, which was followed by engrossing question and answer session. Dr. Rizwan Naeem and Mr. Atif Mumtaz presented our Tele-healthcare project (Jaroka) and explained the uniqueness and innovation that we are bringing to this project. Our focus was social networking with APNNA doctors so that they voluntarily take part in our project activities and help us in IDP relief efforts which is nowadays centre point of our project.
