Message from Vipul Shah, MD
I have been a member of the academy since 2005 and have been on the international affairs committee for 6 years between 2010 till 2016.Currently on the membership committee. I also head the R P SHAH Memorial trust and the Asian Initiative of the Reaching for the Stars. Please find the link to a short introduction from the RFTS http://reachingforthestars.org/about-us/advisory-board/. In the last 5 years of existence R P Shah memorial trust has helped more than 3000 children who live in poor resource settings get treatment which includes surgery and therapy at very nominal rates . The trust and RFTS initiative have conducted various programmes in order to get the media and the local political establishment sensitive to the needs of children with cerebral palsy by means of one to one dialogues and getting the rehabilitation Department of Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare involved in not only getting better care but also ensuring that our voices are heard.
