Chandigarh 28th January:- Max India Foundation ( MIF) , the corporate social responsibility wing of Max India Group has oganized a free multispecialty health camp at Dugri Kotli village near Chamkaur Sahib in Ropar district today. The camp was organized in association with Max Super Specialty Hospital, Mohali and Max Specialty Films, the production unit of the Max Group based near Ropar.

 The free consultations and checkups were provided to around 262 underprivileged people, mostly women. A team of nurses, doctors, pharmacists and paramedic staff comprising of Dr.  Ritika from Gynecology, Dr Ashok Gupta from Internal Medicine, Dr.  Vinay from Orthopaedics and Dr.  Harpreet Kapoor from Eye specialties addressed the healthcare needs of all those present during camp.  MIF distributed free medicines to the people besides offering bp, blood sugar, eye tests, HB, ECG and bone mass densitometry tests free of cost. The volunteers from Max Speciality Films arranged the logistics for the camp and took care of the patients and volunteered their services for a good cause.

Speaking during, Mohini Daljeet Singh, Chief Executive, MIF said that a woman is considered the health manager of the family. However, unfortunately while she's taking care of everyone else, she often neglects her own health. MIF is committed towards making specialized healthcare services accessible to all sections of society, especially women who are the backbone. Through this free medical camp, our endeavour is to address the health concerns of the women who are often neglected due to distance from a good healthcare facility or monetary constraints. 

Sandeep Dogra, VP and Zonal Head, Max Hospitals Punjab said that in line with the Max Group philosophy of 'Seva-bhav', we have taken up the initiative to provide free consultation and medicines to women and are happy that this initiative will benefit them.
