WASHIGTON: An influential body of Indian-American physicians is pressing U.S. lawmakers on several issues including how to continue to provide healthcare to patients while being rewarded in a just and sustainable way.

Other issues raised by members of the Association of American Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) at its legislative day reception Wednesday on the Capitol Hill, seat of U.S. Congress, included immigration reform, implementation of Affordable Care Act and growing US-India relations.

Attended by nearly two dozen lawmakers, the annual event brought together over 120 delegates from across the U.S. from the largest ethnic organisation of physicians, representing over 100,000 physicians of Indian origin, according to a media release.

In his keynote address, India’s ambassador to the U.S.  Jaishankar, praised the Indian American community, and in particular the physicians of Indian origin, for their role in transforming Indo-U.S. relations.
