To develop the socio-economic conditions of the community a disease free healthy generation is very much essential. Keeping this aspect in mind Women’s Grievance & Redressal Cell and NSS unit of Christian College of Engineering & Technology, Bhilai (CCET), jointly felt the urge of educating the underprivileged and less aware people about Health rights and services through experts. CCET, Bhilai cordially invited a team of five doctors along with nine supporting staff from C M Medical College & Hospital.
The health camp started with Orientation Session held in the auditorium of the Christian College of Engineering & Technology, Bhilai at 10:00 am on 21th Jan’2016. Around 1500 members including CCET family and people residing nearby college attended the camp. The primary objective of this health awareness program was to “Keep people disease free”. The diseases like diarrhea, malaria, dengue, hookworm, diabetics, high blood pressure etc get spread due to irregular lifestyle and lack of knowledge. Medicines were provided to all the members who were found to be in need of them. There were some patients who were found to go for detailed checkups and treatment are called to C M Medical College & Hospital through free treatment card. The camp helped them to know about their medical status and how to adopt a healthy lifestyle to prevent diseases.
