Panda Nation

A board-certified cardiologist with the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Pradeep Ghia manages his own practice in Easton, Pennsylvania, and directs operations for a secondary site in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Dr. Pradeep Ghia is also a proud supporter of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), which encourages members of the public to advance efforts for wildlife and environmental conservation by fundraising through Panda Nation.

Panda Nation serves as the community engagement arm of the WWF and enables individuals to establish their own fundraising campaigns and community projects. The group provides members with the tools and resources to integrate their wild interests into fundraising efforts that contribute toward protecting vulnerable wildlife, habitats, and natural resources. Furthermore, participation in Panda Nation connects members to a supportive community of like-minded individuals.

Fundraising options vary in nature, from celebrating a special occasion through self-created campaigns to participating in an athletic event and dedicating funds toward a WWF cause. Individuals may also share their love of a favorite animal by launching fundraising campaigns that highlight that animal’s importance and significance.

For more than three decades, Dr. Pradeep Ghia practiced cardiology from his office in Easton, Pennsylvania. Dr. Ghia routinely performed cardiac catheterizations, pacemaker installations, and provided many other cardiological services to his patients before he retired in 2016. Outside of his work, Pradeep Ghia supports a number of charitable organizations, including Habitat for Humanity.

In a recent announcement, Habitat for Humanity said that GAF Materials Corporation will continue to serve as a partner and provide support in the form of free roofing materials. GAF is the biggest maker of roofing products in North America and will provide roofing to Habitat builds in both the United States and Canada.

In addition, contractors certified to install GAF products will provide volunteer labor. Habitat for Humanity official Colleen Finn Ridenhour expressed gratitude for the support GAF has provided over the years as well as its renewed commitment. Ms. Ridenhour also pointed out that housing construction costs on Habitat for Humanity builds are lower when partners such as GAF produce materials, which allows Habitat for Humanity to spend its dollars more efficiently.
