GAPIO is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to empowering physicians of Indian origin providing affordable healthcare, contributing to local and regional community development and helping reduce health inequalities on a global level.
The goal of this collaboration was to gather physicians of Indian origin to initiate connections, share ideas and learn through a singular platform.

The event also included sessions on artificial intelligence in healthcare, Vedic Wisdom – leadership in medicine and reaching the unreached and global opportunities in healthcare.
