ITM IHS recently has got a special association with Vidyadhiraj Charitable Trust, Kelwe village which is close to the IHS, Panvel campus.
Recently WHO Day program was also conducted there; where the feedback received conveyed the need for a routine check-up and regular visit of doctors/healthcare professionals to the place. A new community activity centre was established for this with an aim to provide basic health checkup facilities covering preliminary investigation for the elderly staying at Harigram.
In first of its kind of program a team comprising of student volunteers and staff representatives from IHS, Panvel visited Harigram on 20th March 2017. A majority of elderly residents had their routine health check up done which covered basic parameters as BP, random sugar, eye checkup etc. There were cases of cataract, cornea, glaucoma also diagnosed during the eye check up.
With a good turnout and response, the association has grown strong with a conclusion of having such visits on a regular basis at Harigram.
This entire effort happened due to the efforts of Mr Shenoy & M r Hegde of VDT with whom Prof R S S Mani & Shri Kiran Rane had several meetings to make this happen.
KUDOS TO TEAM ITM IHS Panvel.
