DFN Doctors Volunteer at Health Camp
DFN doctor, Man Bahadur Darji, took part in a health camp this week, along with colleagues, including fellow DFN Doctor, Kamal Hamal.
They helped 150 patients by volunteering to conduct diabetes and hypertension screening. With diabetes becoming increasingly prevalent and cardiovascular disease a leading cause of death in Nepal, screening camps are an invaluable resource.
For Dr. Man, this is also a great opportunity to gain valuable experience during his internship year, ahead of working in the remote regions next year, where health camps like this are a lifeline for many patients who live days away from the nearest hospital.
