Who We Are

Sudanese American Physicians Association (SAPA) is a not-for-profit, scientific professional, non-partisan, and humanitarian membership-based organization established in January 2019, for physicians of Sudanese descent living and working within the United States to provide support networking, education among physicians within the United States as well as collaboration with and emergency aid to physicians and healthcare organizations in Sudan and abroad.

Formal members have significant input in the governance and operations of the organization by electing all board of directors and executive committee associates. They are encouraged and expected to play an active role in the design and implementation of the organization’s programs.  Elected board and executive committee associates need to be able to leave their personal and professional agendas behind and make decisions only for the best of the entire organization.
