OPTAA has given me the opportunity to meet amazing alumni from our Alma mater. It reminds me of the impact CMC and OPTSA have had in my life. As global healthcare interventions focus on prevention, lifestyle modification, mobility and quality of life, this website provides us a platform to collaborate and seize the opportunity to shape the conversation and contribute to the evolution of healthcare delivery. I look forward to connecting with more of you soon.
OPTAA has been always close to me, it is the most friendly and energetic environment. It has been a great learning both personally and professionally, being part of it has guided me in my personal growth and in my career. It is a great place for the Alumini to grow and contribute to the development of students, patients and the community. I am grateful to be part of OPTAA
I have really enjoyed participating in various OPTAA activities both for nostalgic reasons and also for academic and professional reasons. OPTAA members have been a huge resource for me.
From OPTSA to OPTAA this I should say ,has been many things to me. It has brought out the best in me as always. And helped me to make those connections which without it, I may have never done. OPTAA has been a place to learn from each other, and to cherish the goodness of alma mater
