On 15th August 2015, IMA Mumbai Branch in association with MARD organized a Blood Donation drive at J. J. Hospital which was inaugurated by Hon’ble Minister of Higher & Technical Education and Cultural Affairs, Maharashtra State, Shri Vinod Tawde. Around 600 units of blood were collected. Dr Ajoy Saha and Dr Arvind Patel participated in a panel discussion on NORI (No Obligation to return to India). The IMA stall was installed at the venue and membership promotional materials and forms were distributed to those eligible for membership of IMA. The response to this activity was encouraging as Dr. Sagar Mundada and many of his colleagues became members of IMA Mumbai Branch.
