PLEXUS- A MEDICAL PUZZLE

AMSA India in collaboration with Inklings, the literary society of Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi introduced and organised PLEXUS- a medical puzzle collective.

Amidst an atmosphere already brightened by the festive energy of SPLASH, LHMC's Annual Inter-College Festival, AMSAIndia brought together fellow medico litterateurs for PLEXUS with an assortment of events like 
1) Medical Taboo: with 6 taboo words, teams would have to use their hippocampal storage to guess the winning word.
2) Medical Quiz: a round with a set of 10 questions about AMSA, World Health Day, and Medicine!
3) Boomerang: A round where the contesting teams would make a 2 second loop video of any medical procedure, technique etc. They would then have to caption it and explain its significance. 

The audience and contestants were also introduced to AMSA India and its work. They were shown some quirky, stimulating TEDx clippings in between these rounds to balance it all out.

We look forward to more opportunities for our new initiative called PLEXUS as we strive to take AMSA India further ahead in its journey.

PINKATHON

India's Biggest women’s run

Pinkathon, India's Biggest women’s run is an initiative of the United Sisters Foundation. It was created with the specific purpose of getting more and more women to adopt a fitter lifestyle for themselves and their families, and to highlight the need for increased awareness about Breast cancer and other issues that put women’s lives at risk. 
The basic idea behind the marathon is that women are the key to a healthier and fitter society.In the current scenario, women neglect their own health and are encouraged to stay at home, and often made to feel guilty about spending time on themselves.

AMSA India’s members and students from various medical colleges participated in the Delhi episode of Pinkathon held at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on 23rd September, 2018.
