Health camp at Barkhala MPHC organized by Department of Community Medicine under the Family Adoption Program mandated by National Medical Commission.

In a commendable initiative aimed at promoting community health and wellness, doctors and students from Nalbari Medical College joined hands today to conduct a comprehensive health camp in Barkhala MPHC encompassing Barkhala and Thanpatkuchi villages. This collaborative effort, organized by Department of Community Medicine on 27th June, 2024 under the aegis of Family Adoption Program (Mandated by NMC)  brought much-needed medical care and attention to residents of these rural areas, underscoring the college's commitment to serving the local community.

The health camp, which commenced early in the morning, witnessed enthusiastic participation from medical professionals, faculty members, and eager medical students. The event was strategically designed to address various healthcare needs prevalent among villagers, including general health check-ups, screening for chronic diseases, and awareness sessions on hygiene and preventive healthcare measures.

Under the guidance of experienced doctors from Departments of Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, ENT and Dermatology, the medical students played a pivotal role in conducting preliminary examinations, recording vital signs like Blood Sugar, HB% estimation, BMI estimation etc and assisting in patient education. This hands-on experience not only enriched their clinical skills but also fostered a spirit of empathy and social responsibility among the future healthcare providers.

Throughout the day, villagers from Barkhala and Thanpatkuchi availed themselves of the opportunity to consult with specialists across various medical disciplines, receive free medications, and gain valuable insights into leading a healthier lifestyle. The camp also featured interactive sessions on nutrition, maternal health, and the importance of vaccination, tailored to address specific local health challenges.

The organizers expressed gratitude to Prof (Dr) Babul Kumar Bezbaruah, Principal cum Chief Superintendent of Nalbari Medical College, Dr Madhab Ch Rajbangshi, Medical Superintendent of Nalbari Medical College,  local administration, community leaders, and volunteers whose support was instrumental in ensuring the smooth conduct of the health camp. Their collaborative efforts helped reach out to a significant number of villagers, fostering a positive impact on community health.

As the sun set on a successful day, the sentiment of hope and gratitude resonated among both organizers and beneficiaries alike. The health camp at Barkhala and Thanpatkuchi villages not only provided essential healthcare services but also strengthened the bonds between Nalbari Medical College and the surrounding communities, promising a healthier future for all.
