Awareness Camp on World Stroke Day

Friday, October 29, 2021 |Morwadi, Pimpri, Pune |Health Camp/ Medical Camp/ Diagnostic Camp

As per World Health Organization (WHO), every year World Stroke Day is celebrated on 29th October. The objective of this global awareness day is to provide a platform for the stroke community to increase awareness and drive action on stroke. The theme for World Stroke Day 2021 was: “Learn the signs, Say its a stroke and save Precious time”. So on this occasion Dr. D. Y. Patil College of Physiotherapy, Pune took an initiative in this direction by organizing an awareness camp at Jeshtnagarik sang located in Morwadi, Pimpri, Pune, under the guidance of Dr. Preeti Gazbare (PT) Associate Professor.

Seven Neuro Postgraduate students volunteered to spread awareness to more than 20 beneficiaries regarding what is stroke, its signs and symptoms, their risk factors, causes and prevention methods. A small demonstration of general exercises made the participant know the importance of exercise. Queries, doubts by the participants were addressed by the Physio team. Warm feedback was received from the participant, encouraging us for conducting more such camps in the future. The camp ended around 6.30 pm.
