2021 Convention Cancelled

Dear fellow Maulanians,

I would like to wish you and your families a very happy and healthy 2021.

We had our MAMCOAANA Executive committee zoom meeting on Jan 7 , 2021 to discuss plans regarding the 2021 convention. The uncertainty about the pandemic and travel restrictions coupled with unknown future risk would seriously jeopardize an in person convention. Hence, we have decided to cancel the 2021 convention scheduled to be held in Pittsburgh.

We are still in the process of identifying suitable means to have a virtual meet and greet session this year. I will continue to communicate through the MAMCOAANA website as more information becomes available.

We are hopeful that universal vaccination and new therapies will help return us to normalcy as soon as possible.

I would like to thank all of you for your support and patience during these challenging times.

Hope to see the MAMCOAANA family in person soon.

Please stay safe and healthy,

Sincerely,
Aashish Dua

Dear Fellow Maulanians,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the Annual MAMCOAANA convention to be held in Pittsburgh next year. This has been a very difficult year for all of us amid the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to thank Dr. Rajesh Malik for putting in extraordinary effort in trying to organize the 2020 convention amid such trying circumstances.

We as health care workers have been at the front lines during this crisis . We have all made tremendous sacrifice and put our patients first in these unprecedented times. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the service that you are providing in these difficult times.

I would like to offer you all a ray of hope for the next year as we approach 2021. We look forward to celebrate, share stories of anguish and victory and just be together at our annual MAMCOAANA convention 2021.

My wife Monica is a graduate of MAMC 88 batch like me. We have been fortunate to be a part of this extended MAMC family and have attended some amazing conventions over the last few years.

We are looking forward to the year 2021 as a fresh start to this annual reunion and promise to deliver a safe yet fun packed convention. We would like you all to join us for our 37th annual MAMCOAANA Convention

Special GBM

Due to cancellation of MAMCOAANA Convention 2020, the usual GBM was not held. Therefore, a special general body meeting was conducted virtually and concluded successfully on August 1, 2020. We welcome our president for 2020-2021 Dr. Aashish Dua who will take on the workings of MAMCOAANA in some very challenging times!

The minutes of our special GBM will be made available as usual on this year’s Sandesh which will be published online as usual in the weeks to come.

2020 Convention Cancelled

Dear Maulanians,

Due to the current COVID19 pandemic situation, the Executive committee has unanimously decided to cancel the 2020 MAMCOAANA Atlantic City NJ convention.

Tentatively, the Atlantic City NJ event will now happen in 2022. The Pittsburgh PA convention for 2021 remains on schedule. All the registrants who have already paid the registration fee, will be reimbursed the full amount shortly.

Registration for the 2021 MAMCOAANA convention will be announced by Dr Ashish Dua.

While the medical community is busy fighting this pandemic with its full might, we want you to be-safe and stay-healthy.

2019-20 President’s Message

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ for the 36th MAMCOAANA convention in 2020.

After having great convention in Chicago organized by Drs. Manjari & Sunil Malkani in 2019, we are ready to invite you to continue the experience in a totally energetic and happening oceanfront property. Dr Bharti Khurana will be conducting incredible CME session, as she has done in past several years.

I personally have been very motivated by the MACOAANA conventions as an event in our life where I can meet the batchmates and other alumni from medical college days. Its more of a family event we look forward to each year, to go to another city/location and enjoy the top-level CME activities while enjoying with friends and their families. I am sure that this a mutual feeling among all the participants.

It’s a great way for networking as well. We reconnect with the friends from MAMC days (1990-1995) and make new friendships with many more alumni from MAMC and their families.

My wife Pooja, who graduated from GMC Nagpur in 1998, has become a MAMC’ite-by-marriage and enjoys the conventions very much. I recall when I went to her 20 yr reunion in Nagpur, her batchmates made me feel as if I was their batchmate too. The feelings are mutual. The spouses and family of Maulanians makes the MAMCOAANA family strong and complete. We invite LHMC and UCMS alumni to join the convention too.

My four daughters enjoy the conventions since some of the kids have become their regular friends as well. They enjoy knowing the new places and look forward to the meeting every year.

I would like to continue the tradition of this Annual convention by inviting Alumni to join us at —

36th ANNUAL MAMCOAANA CONVENTION 2020
Location: Hard Rock Hotel Casino, Atlantic City, NJ
Dates: Thursday July 30th through Sunday August 2nd, 2020

We are planning an exciting event with musical evening, gup-shup, beach events, the Gala night, CME events and more…

Get ready to Rock n Roll.

Save the date and make travel plans to 36th MAMCOAANA convention.

2018-19 President’s Message

Dear Friends,

The 2018 MAMCOAANA Convention was a big success thanks to great efforts by Dr Sonali and Dr Vivek Mishra. They have given us a great experience and Dr Bharti Khurana conducted an incredible CME Meeting.

I will never forget these moments of learning, joy and celebration with my Classmates -some of whom I met after 24 years. I am sure all participants share these feelings. What a great event for networking!

Our Annual meeting with the Alumni is something special. Days and nights spent at MAMC (1989 -1994) created friendships that have become strong and lasted a lifetime. Besides renewing the past bonds – I find that we make new friends and discover fresh connections with our Alumni.

My wife Manjari graduated from LHMC in 1996. With us attending MAMCOAANA she has also renewed old friendships and made new contacts with Hardinge Alumni. We are delighted to invite LHMC Alumni to attend next year’s meeting as well.

The World is really a small place as long as we are willing to open our arms and get to know each other. I feel that in all of us there is a perpetual longing to reunite with our roots.

MAMCOAANA is becoming a steadily growing family that welcomes new members every year. I encourage young graduates as well as those who have been on the fence to become life members this year.

I would like to continue the tradition of this Annual convention by inviting Alumni to join us at —

35th ANNUAL MAMCOAANA CONVENTION 2019.

Dates – Thursday July 25 to Sunday July 28, 2019.
Hotel – Swissotel, Chicago

We are in the process of creating a great program (includes Family fun time at the Beach, Musical Evening, Gupshup, Shayari, Tennis Tournament, Gala dinner).

Get ready to have a blast.
