DR SANJAY DUDHAT PRESIDENT IMA MUMBAI WEST 2016-2017
The month of May was really hot. The scorching May heat has truly descended on Mumbai & is making our life miserable. The scenario is everywhere the same, work force is depleting as all are enjoying vacation. Despite of all these we had good academic activities in the month of May. Various health days were observed.
We celebrated World Asthma Day on 3rd May. I must congratulate Dr. Salil Bendre, the convener for the programme for excellent academic feast to the members. Inhalation devices was very helpful topic for all our members. World Hypertension Day was a big event not only in IMA, but all IMA’s in Maharashtra State. There was free B.P. Check-up Camp enthusiastically conducted all over. We were able to get BP readings of about more than 22000 patients. Thanks to Dr. Akil Contractor for this idea of Free BP Check-up.
We also observed World Nurses Day on 12th May where we felicitated Senior Leading Nurses who had contributed a lot in Nursing of Patients. I thank all the members for their overwhelming response for the celebration of all these academic activities. As usual Dr. Rashmikant Sanghvi, Dr. Shobha Ahuja & Dr. Subash Gajria did excellent job to conduct these activities. We also celebrated “World No Tobacco Day”, first time outside IMA. We did this programme with Mumbai Traffic Police at Jogeshwari – East, which I had organized. There was overwhelming response by Traffic Police department with over 350 attendance. I also had talk on “Radio – Mumbai Akashwani” on 31st May for World No Tobacco Day, where I spoke about our IMA’s work which went to all over Maharashtra.
I must thank our dynamic secretary Dr. Mehul Bhatt to revive our IMA Movie Club. There was excellent response from the members for the movie ‘AWAKENINGS’ on 15th May. IPL final was shown on 29th May & programme was really well organized. All credit goes to Dr. Mehul Bhatt & Chairperson, Member’s Welfare Sub Committee – Dr. Ramnik Chauhan for their great efforts.
The prestigious, ICON – An International Conference for Family Physicians is coming very close now. It will be hosted by us on 25th & 26th June at our premises. I am sure it will be a good academic feast to all our members. I request all of you to register in large numbers and make this conference a great success.
Similarly, I invite you to attend Doctor’s Day Celebrations in large numbers, which we will be observing on Sunday, 3rd July from 06.00 pm onwards. There will be Blood Donation Drive on same day in the morning and request all of you to participate. We will be felicitating leading doctors in their field, detailed programme is given in the image.
Best wishes to the Children of our members who appeared for 10th & 12th as results will start coming soon.
Long Live IMA !
With best regards,
Dr. Sanjay Dudhat
