ABOUT IAMA OF NORTHEAST FLORIDA
The Indo-American Medical Association (IAMA) of Northeast Florida is the non-profit membership organization of the doctors of medicine and dentistry of East Indian origin/ancestry. Physicians founded IAMA Northeast Florida more than 25 years ago with a vision to provide educational, social, scientific, cultural and charitable platform to this group of physicians. The organization's meteoritic rise from a basement chat twenty years ago to become one of today's premier ethnic medical associations is a tribute to our past leaders, hardworking committees, and a constituency of 150 physicians, almost 30 dentists, and countless medical students living and practicing in Northeast Florida. The mission of IAMA Northeast Florida is to serve as a forum to facilitate and enable the Indian American physicians to excel in patient care, teaching, research, and help them to pursue their aspirations in professional and community affairs
