Health, Hygiene and Sanitation
Soroptimist International Bombay Chembur organized a Health Awareness Talk for underprivileged women of Dr. K M Vasudevan Pillai’s Campus, New Panvel and Pillai’s HOC Educational Complex, Rasayani on the 11th of August, 2012.
Dr. Suvarna Khadilkar and Dr. Vijaya Badhwar, two senior gynaecologists belonging to the Mumbai Obstetric and Gynaecological Society (MOGS) were the speakers for the session held in Panvel and Rasayani campuses respectively.
The event was a grand success with around 65 participants attending the talk at the Panvel Campus and around 30 women attending the talk at the Rasayani Campus. The experts spoke about the various changes that a woman’s body goes through at different stages of her life and other issues regarding reproductive health. The doctors spoke in Marathi, the local language spoken by the audience. The participants greatly appreciated the talk and actively asked questions and openly discussed their gynaecological problems with the expert. The sessions in both the campuses lasted for about 1 hour 15 minutes. They participants were provided with refreshments.
We are sure that in the future we will be able to make a difference in the lives of the many women we meet and interact with in our daily lives both at home and in our professional spheres.
