A free general health checkup was successfully organized at the Leprosy colony in Bijapur, Karnataka on 13th June 2018. This was a joint effort by the AMSA and a voluntary student organization, The Human Touch, tagged with our hospital management. A total of 150 people received the check up and were given health cards which would provide them with a concession accordingly in our hospital. Some of them were referred to the hospital for further investigations and to the IPD for surgeries for free. They were given free medicines for their respective ailments. About 17 students volunteered and it was a great experience for all, learning about the sufferings of the people at the colony and encouraging us for more such future endeavors!
AMSA India organised a free medical health check-up camp in collaboration with CRY – Child Rights and You, in Nyay Khand 3, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad on 5th May, 2018.
The objective of the camp was to spread health awareness among children and adolescents of the area and to evaluate them for any illnesses.
From counselling about the importance of basic hygiene and a healthy diet to organising a one-to-one hand hygiene workshop, our volunteers made sure that the kids thoroughly benefited from our camp.
87 Children were examined, screened for illnesses and advised to refer to the nearest hospital – M.M.G. District Hospital, Ghanta Ghar, Ghaziabad.
CRY volunteers will follow up with them to ensure that our efforts bear fruit.
We sincerely appreciate the support and efforts of volunteers of CRY who left no stone unturned to run the camp smoothly.
The overwhelming response to our periodic health camp once again, has indeed encouraged us to continue with this tradition of ours, and stimulated us to keep giving our best in the camps to come.
The students of Era’s Lucknow University under Asian Medical Student’s Association, took this message from paper to practice as they held an interactive session with the underprivileged children of Shri Ram Audhyogic Anathalaya in an attempt to spread ‘Hygiene Awareness’. With talks about what hygiene actually is and how to simply practise it, to the WHO steps of hand washing, the session was happily participated in by the kids as a fun learning one.
As we bid goodbye to them, the smiles spread across their innocent faces on receiving hampers comprising of a hand sanitizer and some candies, made it a happy day for both the participants as well as the organisers.
Students of Government Medical College, Amritsar teamed up with internationally recognised charity and NGO: Deep Mission to host a two day health camp. Two centres were strategically chosen so that maximum number of children could be examined. One being the Public School under the NGO.
The team included 5 interns and upto 8 undergraduates working seamlessly as a unit. The health assessment included a one on one brief consultation allowing the children to voice any complaints they might have, blood pressure monitoring, weight, height measurement, auscultation and a physical exam. Following the assessment, the children even put up a zealous singing performance to show their gratitude towards the team. “We, as medical students were glad to provide such a pragmatic service through such an educational experience.” said
