Medicine specialist to conduct next media OPD

Acclaimed medicine specialist Dr Brajen Lahkar will conduct the next weekly evening OPD clinic at Guwahati Press Club on 21 October 2017. The practicing doctor from the State’s well-known healthcare institution Dispur Hospital will be available for free consultations to the participants from 4 to 6 pm at the press club premises.

The last Saturday camp, organized under the ‘Evening with a Doctor’ program for the benefit of press club members along with their dependants, was graced by Dr Siben Dutta and Dr Santos Reddy from the city based Down Town Hospital.

Launched in August 2016 with initial supports from Dr Jayanta Bardoloi, managing director of Dispur Hospital in raising a doctor's chamber at the press club premises, the series of camps have emerged as a ‘healthy & rewarding hangout’ for the media persons. Many working journalists with high blood pressure & sugar were diagnosed in the camps and they were advised for follow up actions accordingly. Till date, practicing physicians from Apollo Chennai Hospital, SIMS Hospital Chennai, Manipal Bangalore Hospital, Fortis Hospital Bangalore, Medanta the Medicity Hospital, GNRC Hospitals, Hayat Hospital, Ayursundra Hospital, Nemcare Hospital, Sun Valley Hospital, Sight First Eye-Clinic, Barthakur Clinic, Wintrobe Hospital etc have attended the camps.

Even though the camps are primarily organised for the benefit of press club members with their close relatives, any journalist of the region (also the country) with their family members may take the advantage of the clinics, said a statement from the pioneer press club of northeast India adding that similar initiatives are also encouraged in other parts of the region.
