AMDAANA was founded on October 27, 1979 in Seven Springs, PA. It has two major objectives:
- To develop camaraderie and networking amongst alumni of Government Medical and Dental Colleges, Amritsar, Punjab India, residing in North America.
- To enrich education, and through education, patient care at our alma maters.
AMDAANA holds an annual meeting in North America in the third week of July to further objective number one.
AMDAANA has undertaken a project named Amritsar Project to enhance educational and life experiences at our alma maters.
All alumni of these colleges residing in North America are potential members. We have a mailing list of over 800 with over 250 life members.
