Dr. Pagidipati Devaiah

Chairman

Born during the Indian independence movement, Devaiah hails from a remote village in Telangana. He is from an economically and socially backward family. However, his determination, supported by encouragement from his father and his Head Master Sri Subbarao gaaru made him reach new scales of performance academically. While working at Kakatiya Medical College, he married Rudrama who was aspiring to study medicine. Devaiah supported her education after marriage. Soon they relocated to the US, and Devaiah specialized in Anesthesiology and sub-specialty in pediatric anesthesia at Harvard Medical School's Children Hospital Boston. Dr. Rudrama finished her training in Pathology at Baptist Memorial Hospital in 1991. They together started Suncoast Labs and later Freedom Health, which is regarded one of the top health insurance companies in Florida. Despite success, fame and money, Dr.Devaiah always was always restless to do something to the homeland and payback to the country. That seed of thought led to formation of NAADAM.

Dr. Pagidipati Rudrama Devi

Vice Chairman

Rudrama comes from a well to do family but her parents gave up wealth for principles based on communist beliefs and preferred a simple, earnest life. However, her father believed in empowerment through education and encouraged all his children to study well and accomplish things on their own. Rudrama finished her medicine from Gandhi Medical College and went onto complete her training in Pathology at Baptist Memorial Hospital. She has been supported in all her endeavors by her husband, parents and her three children Siddhartha, Rahul and Srujani. She has followed Devaiah closely in his pursuit all through and provided a guiding lamp.
