A Message from the President
Mohammed Javed Iqbal MD
I am humbled, privileged and proud to be presiding over Nishtar Alumni this year. We are a dynamic Alumni. We may be small in numbers, but tall in performance. We have some very generous donors starting from the very first graduating class of 1956. Like Dr.Riazul Immi to our new graduates, any gift for our Alumni’s project will be deeply appreciated.
We have a world class academic facility in Nishtar. Our Principal Dr Salik is very receptive to our ideology of improving the healthcare quality and delivery in Multan. I was impressed with Professor Ejaz Masood & Dr. Zahir Khan, who are trying to excel the medical education in Nishtar.
We have a local non-medical community that is ready to help as equal partners in any project namely Mr. Rumi, Brigadier Qureshi, and Mr. Ayyub Shah.
We also have almost 50 scholarships available for Nishtar, which has always been my dream and came true with the help of our Alumni and the persistence of Dr Ghulam Qadir and another Nishtarian who wishes to remain anonymous.
We recently finished the Endoscopy project, which is functioning now under our past President Dr. G.I. Mujtaba with the help of Dr, Abdul Jabbar and with major donations made by Dr. Iftikhar Khan and Mr. Rumi.
We have also instituted a NANA office at Nishtar Medical College with a part-time Secretary under NANA.
I am a team player and will help any way I can to improve our Alumni membership and represent you in APPNA with all of my strength.
I would like to extend a welcome to our new member of the Executive Committee, Dr. Sanaullah, who will be our treasurer for 2017.
I want to personally thank our past President Dr. Gulham Mujaba, who did a very good job in representing us. I would also like to extend a special thanks Dr Rashid Piracha for helping to guide us for the last several years and Dr. Hamid Mukhtar for keeping our website maintained and running.
I look forward to making this a fantastic and productive year for all of us.
Mohammed J Iqbal, MD
NANA President 2017
