More than 200 Pakistani-American doctors from the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent of North America (APPNA) have volunteered their time and services for this Free Health Care Day.

“Pakistani-American doctors have donated their time and services for years,” said Dr. Zeelaf Munir MD, president of APPNA. “But we hope to help thousands of fellow Americans on one day during our first coordinated National Free Health Care Day.”

Dr. Munir, a New York-based psychiatrist, will be helping out at the Harlem location at 3403 Broadway (at 138th street) in New York.

Local Pakistani-American doctors will be offering their services for free, as part of a larger APPNA charitable initiative.

APPNA, a non-profit 501(c)3, is one of the largest ethnic medical societies in North America representing more than 15,000 physicians and health care professionals of Pakistani descent serving across the United States and Canada. Established in 1976, the organization dedicated to fostering scientific development and education in the field of medicine and to delivering better health care, irrespective of race, color, creed, or gender.
