AAVIO Annual Meeting 2017:

The annual American Association of Veterinarians of Indian Origin (AAVIO) meeting 2017 was held on May 21, 2017 Sunday from 12:00 PM-4:00 PM,  at Blue Bell Country Club in Blue Bell, PA ( abImage result for blue bell country clubout 40 miles west of Philadelphia).

It was the 2nd consecutive meeting of this group.  It’s always fun and enjoyable meeting as you get meet veterinarians from all over India who are settled in the US and involved either in private practice, industry, govt. or academia.
As Philadelphia borders New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and New York City (approx. 90 miles from Philadelphia), about 50 veterinarians from these regions attended the meeting.  The meeting was held in an elite banquet hall in Blue Bell Country Club.  It was gorgeous spring, sunny day with cool breeze and no humidity.  Of course!, the menu was delicious Indian dishes.  What a treat!!
Dr. Ravi Murarka is the president of the association and has been working very diligently for the past number of years to get this association off  the ground and finally it did.  Many, many thanks to Ravi!!  He is a very generous man and always willing to help others.  He graduated from the Nagpur Veterinary College in early 80’s.
Attending veterinarians ranged from 25 years to 75 years of age.  Most of the veterinarians own either single or multiple clinics.  They are very successful in their practices and have earned the respect in their communities. It was wonderful to talk to them and exchange pleasantries. Everyone was more than willing to extend helpful hand to one another.
I greatly appreciated an opportunity to give a presentation on “Nutritional management of the gastrointestinal diseases”.
Bravo!!!
Dr. Avinash Deshmukh
