In his opening remarks, the outgoing President Dr. Lalit Savla talked about the significant achievements IMANE had made during the past year including the 2005 Inaugural Charity Gala, YPS Financial Management Seminar and  the inauguration of the free health facility in Shrewsbury, MA.

IMANE was established in 1978 to address the issues of social, cultural, educational and professional needs of the physicians of Indian Origin settled in the New England area. Starting with a handful of physicians in Massachusetts, this organization has grown to have over three hundred members scattered all over the New England States. Since its inception IMANE has been actively involved in community service projects here in Massachusetts.

The two guests of honor were Honorable District Attorney Martha Coakley, who talked about the importance of prevention of child abuse, and Honorable Rep. Peter Koutoujia, who talked about the importance of universal health care and the obligation to provide coverage for one and all.

During the past year, IMANE has made significant efforts to join hands with other local organizations in town such as TiE Boston. “Tie Boston looks forward to working with IMANE in the future,” said Vinit Nijhawan, President of TiE Boston who was feliciatated at this function.

The event was beautiful with stage decorations by Shobha Sastry of Alankar that added a touch of class. The formal presentations were followed by dinner and an evening of Hindi songs by Dr. Dhiren Buch , an anesthesiologist from Indianapolis.
