Dear colleagues and friends

Find below our AAMA April newsletter:

The goal of the grants should align with the following:

  • To promote disease prevention strategies and healthy behavior
  • To improve the status of health care and its delivery
  • To establish health programs in places where there are none
  • To develop evidence-based health care educational and/or training programs
  • The AAMA will be leading a 3-hour virtual seminar on June 4, from 9am till 12pm. The topic of presentation will be: Pathways to Success: A Celebration of Women in Healthcare. We anticipate hosting 6 highly achieved female academicians, scientists, and leaders in health care to highlight their current medical/scientific professional activities and achievements, including key factors influencing personal and professional growth. We have 4 confirmed speakers to date and waiting to get final confirmation from two more before we make a formal announcement (see save the date attachment).
  • The AAMA-sponsored health fair is happening on Saturday May 21 from 1-4pm. This will be a collaboration with Mount Auburn Hospital, Lahey, and the town of Watertown and will take place at ACEC. This will include: Basic Health Screenings; Interactions with Health Professionals; Access to Community Resources; Yoga and Qigong Mini Sessions; Nutrition Information; Raffles and Giveaways. Everyone is invited to attend (please see attachment for more details).
  • The HBO project for the Mikayelyan (Yerevan) and the Republican (Stepanakert) hospitals is inching forward one step at a time. For Yerevan, we have identified a Chinese company from which we will purchase the Dewars tanks and other supplies that will store and deliver the liquid oxygen needed during the treatment sessions. For Stepanakert, if we are unable to guarantee a reliable and consistent supply of liquid oxygen, given the challenges of transporting it from Armenia to Artsakh, we will identify alternate options. As plan B, we are actively working with the minister of health (Mr Hayiryan) and others to determine if we can use compressed oxygen in its gaseous state. Although most of the funds to complete this project have been set aside, we anticipate the need for an additional $15,000 to get it through the finish line. I urge all those interested in sponsoring this one-of-a-kind project to contribute generously to the AAMA. Your donations are tax-deductible. For additional questions, please connect with me.
  • The AAMA in collaboration with the Wisconsin and Chicago-area Armenian physicians have renewed the Dynamed subscription (clinical educational tool for clinicians) at the Armenian National Medical Library. Over the past year, there were a total of 1,504 search clicks with a total of 1,102 full-text requests. This coming year’s renewal of Dynamed is $4,100. Thank you to all who helped fund this program for a second year.
  • The AAMA has been awarded a $9,000 grant from a local foundation in support of our community work in Watertown, as well as our support of medical student and allied health scholarships!
  • Pay your dues through the website electronically ($150 for licensed practitioners, $75 for residents and fellows, free for all students). AAMA is a non-profit organization. All your donations, including payment of your dues, are tax-deductible.
  • If you shop on Amazon, the AAMA is registered with the Amazon Smile program. Choose AAMA as your non-profit organization and a certain percentage of your purchase gets donated to us.
