Dr. Shahnaz Akhtar

My name is Dr. Shahnaz Akhtar and I now reside in Leesburg, VA with my husband Dr. M Javed Akhtar. I am a graduate of Fatima Jinnah Medical College in Lahore and my husband is a graduate of King Edward Medical College. I have been involved with Alliance for many years and was President in the year 2001. My husband was the President of APPNA in the year 2000. I was doing Allergies at Bradford Hospital until recently in my Husbands office. Besides raising two beautiful kids Junaid who works at the Pentagon and Henna who is a paediatrician at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia we have been deeply involved in community service in Bradford, PA where we lived and worked for 38 years before moving to VA. We have been in Rotary International, Friendship Table (feeding the homeless and lower socioeconomic families), local Presbyterian Church in their Interfaith gatherings and dialogue and Free Clinic to name a few. I am looking forward to being part of the Alliance family to do a lot more good work whether it is local or International.
