Pakistani American Psychiatric Association of North America (PAPANA)

We are non-profit, professional, and educational organization incorporated in the United States of America (USA) with no political, religious or ethnic affiliations.
This association has been active under different names for about 45 years until 2013 when it was renamed as PAPANA. In 2017, PAPANA’s general body approved its first constitution and bylaws followed by a tax exempt status granted in 2018 to allow collection of membership dues to support various professional activities of the association.
The PAPANA holds elections to elect cabinet members every year at their annual meeting, which is usually organized during the annual meetings of American Psychiatric Association.
