The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) has formed a political action committee (PAC) to protect the interest of Indian American doctors at the Capitol Hill.
"Our new PAC will empower Indian American doctors to do that by pooling our resources and ensuring the voices of nearly 60,000 physicians are heard throughout state legislatures and the halls of Congress," said Krishna Aggarwal, a physician helping to spearhead the PAC's formation.
"With the mid-term elections less than 80 days away, API-PAC will play an important role this election cycle and beyond to provide strength and unity to Indian American physicians across the United States," Aggarwal said.
The PAC will be a separate legal entity unaffiliated with the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI). It will be professionally led by a political firm in Washington with experienced American advisors, a media statement said.
