It gives me great pleasure to introduce the inaugural online newsletter of the Sri Lanka Medical Association of North America (SLMANA). SLMANA was founded in 1995 as a non-secretarian charitable organization to improve the health and well-being of the disadvantaged in Sri Lanka and the United States.
I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to the Dr. Vaithi Segram, Secretary of SLMANA, who was instrumental in initiating this newsletter. I would like to also introduce Dr. Ramona Rajapakse and Dr. Rushika Conroy, who will be our Co-Editors.
The purpose of this newsletter is to inform and educate readers as well as to provide sponsorship opportunities for those who wish to support our organization. Initially, we will publish the newsletter semi-annually, but with strong enthusiasm, timely feedback, and continued support, we hope to increase this to every quarter.
Please submit newsworthy articles, medical updates, and constructive criticism to enhance and improve this initiative.
I hope you enjoy the first issue!
Thank you for your support,
Darshi Sunderam MD | President | SLMANA
