Cancer Care, with ASMI
APPL Foundation in association with ASMI, organized a Cancer Care Camp for workers and staff at Kellyden Tea Hospital, in February 2016. Our endeavour is to create awareness, particularly among women on the topic of breast and cervical cancer.
The day-long workshop was led by Dr. Tapan Saikia (M.D. - Medical Oncology), along with three senior lady Gynaecologists and an eleven-member paramedical staff. The workshop included free PAP Smear/ Blood Sugar & Bone Marrow Density tests. We saw a high participation rate with over 200 women from Hathikuli, Sagmootea, Nonoi & Kellyden, being screened and tested for blood sugar and BMD. Sixty samples of PAP Smears were collected from women of different age groups. The participants showed deep interest in the subject and interacted with the gynecologists separately in groups of ten to clarify their doubts on various women’s health-related issues. The workshop was covered by News Live.
