KumKum Sood Bhasin

MBBS; MD (Pediatrics)

My name is KumKum Sood Bhasin and I joined LHMC in 1970. After immigrating to USA in 1977, I completed my residency in Pediatrics from the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago, followed by a fellowship in Neonatology at UCLA Hospital, CA. I decided to take an early retirement in December 2009, after a fulfilling career as the Director of the Newborn Nurseries at Kaiser Bellflower.

I relocated to Massachusetts after my retirement and now that my children are grown, I realize that it is time to give back and I share my attempts:

  • Member of Association for India’s Development Boston Chapter, 2009 - current
  • Founding President, Friends of Navdanya Inc. a Registered 501(c)3, 2009 - 2013
  • Volunteer and medical care provider for a disadvantaged population in India, Jan Swasthya Sahyog (NGO), Chattisgarh, 2011- 2014
  • Incorporating Secretary, Friends of JSS (not-for-profit organization), 2014
  • Medical care provider for a tribal population, Swasthya Swaraj Society (NGO), Distt. Kalahandi Odisha, 2015 – current
  • Member, aftercare program run by Sisters of St. Joseph, at Massachusetts Correctional Institute (MCI), Framingham, 2019 - current
  • Volunteer, Newton Food Pantry, Newton, 2020 - current
  • Chair, Liaison committee, serving member on the Nominating, Vision and Outreach Committees and advisor for the Social committee, LHMCAANA, 2020 - current. I have recently joined the Lhmcaana Globe Trotters Committee and am looking forward to travelling with Alumni.

My Vision

I envision LHMCAANA women working together to establish a cohesive Association that supports our members, mentors our juniors and gives back to our Alma Mater, our communities in North America and our country of birth, joyfully.
