APPNA held its first NHCD (National Health Care Day) across USA on Saturday 5th June 2010 Hit Counter

APPNA held its first National Health Care Day (NCHD) in 40 separate sites across USA and served an estimated 3000 patients. Almost all
medical specialties as well as other health professionals and community volunteers volunteered, some in mosques, some in private clinics
while others in community centers, Red Cross shelters and soup kitchens.

This event demonstrated once again APPNA's ability to mobilize its members in humanitarian missions either in USA or abroad. In the past
APPNA has participated in relief activities in Haiti 2010, Pakistan Earthquake Oct. 2005, South Asian Tsunami of 2004, Katrina Hurricane New Orleans
2005 and numerous other relief efforts too many to be named here.

This is an attempt to present a visual history of the longest day of APPNA on mainland USA. For more information visit
