Hemoglobin test for scribes at GPC

Guwahati: Northeast India’s pioneer healthcare institute, Down Town Hospital is conducting a free hemoglobin screening camp at Guwahati Press Club (GPC) on 18 May 2019. The camp, organized under the series of media OPD (out-patient department) clinics, will begin at 3.30 pm and continue till 5.30 pm on the press club campus.

Ideally, the hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin (Hb or Hgb), which is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to various organs & tissues and also transports carbon dioxide back to the lungs. If the hemoglobin level is lower than normal, the person may have anemia. On the other hand, if it is higher than normal level, that person should also consult with the doctors.

In addition to hemoglobin test, member-journalists of the press club will get the opportunity to check their blood sugar level (random) and grouping of their blood. The participants will also get free consultations from an experienced doctor in the camp.

Interested scribes, precisely the lady journalists and spouses of other members, are requested to participate in the camp. Journalists from other parts of the region, who are incidentally here, may also take advantage of the OPC clinic, said a GPC release.
