Health Camp at Hyderabad
On 10th March 2019 Nayi Disha Resource Centre joined hands with the Down Syndrome Federation of India (DSFI) to conduct a health assessment camp at Hyderabad, for children with Down Syndrome under the age of 20. Individuals with Down Syndrome are more prone to a specific set of health challenges that often go unnoticed due to lack of awareness. Early identification and intervention will ensure these individuals lead a happy and healthy life as they grow older. The camp brought together a team of medical professionals that included experts in the fields of Pediatrics, Audiology, Otorhinolaryngology (ENT specialty), Dentistry, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Optometry, Occupational therapy and Physiotherapy, all under one roof. Parents also had the opportunity to interact and seek counsel from the Co-Founder and Chairperson of DSFI, Dr.Surekha Ramachandran who motivated parents to promptly address their child’s medical concerns at the right age while inspiring them to identify and bring out the very best in every child. A total of 38 children were assessed by all the experts and medical advice rendered after examination of each child. The camp was a grand success where parents were able to understand and address their children’s medical needs through a holistic approach.
