President’s Message

rsz_sareen_jitenderIt is an honour to be elected President of the Manitoba Association of Asian Physicians (MAAP) in March 2015. I have had the pleasure of serving as the Chair of the Continuing Medical Education Committee for the last two years. Under the previous leadership of Dr. Rajat Kumar, MAAP has made great strides forward in providing excellent CME programs at the Winter and Summer Symposiums. These CME programs bring together outstanding speakers that cover a wide array of topics in Health. The MAAP organization has partnered with the University of Manitoba to co-develop the CME programs. MAAP also provides an important opportunity to network with health care providers across various specialties. The cultural activities engage families in fun activities, dinner and of course dance.

I am excited to work with the members of the MAAP board in the upcoming years. The annual Summer Symposium continual outstanding speakers in a variety of topics in Medicine with a special focus on Pediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Please join us for the CME events and contact me if you wish to serve on the Board.


Jitender Sareen, MD, FRCPC
President of MAAP
