State President and Hon. State Secretary’s message-July 2016
Indian Medical Association Family is growing & expanding every month. To remain as a family is need of hour in today’s world. June and July has got many important days which needs to be celebrated to impart a message of social activities.
5th June is World Environment Day, as we all know global warming is a major issue around the world. We should preserve our environment by using less electricity, saving water, avoiding plastic use maximum, using paper carry bags, communicating more through soft copies than hard copies. Let everyone of us plant single tree once in a life time with a tree guard of respective name and see that it is surviving and growing into a big tree- in your hospital, parks or may be street where your house is located. Preserve seeds of fruits and vegetables which are consumed by us in a bag rather than throwing them in dust bin; throw these seeds randomly on sides of highway before rains, we might get a tree.
14th June is World Blood Donor Day and 1st July is Doctor’s Day- We urge and request let blood donation be part of our major activity. We should donate blood regularly at least twice a year. It is easiest tissue donation which we can be done three or four times a year. Let the blood donation be for needy patients of government hospitals so that patients who cannot afford single blood bag are not deprived of blood. On doctor’s day We just wish all doctors are remaining in brotherhood and we work more on improving doctor patient relationship and our approach to patient be more sympathetic. Let us take due care that doctor patient relationship is maintained in harmony.
21st June International Yoga Day- Yoga is a gift given by our country to world. We are living a stressful life; distressing is desired at every level- especially for doctors. Life expectancy of doctors is significantly lower than that of general public. So, Yoga should be part of our routine and we should celebrate International Yoga Day, We are sure at least 10 new doctor will be getting sensitized to yoga and making it regular daily habit. Life Style Diseases are grabbing our neck and Yoga is answer to most of the life style diseases.
We desire and request all of our IMA members to be part of GIMACON 2016 to be hosted at Rajkot on 15th & 16th October 2016. Conference is the place where we learn many things, where we meet old friends and make new ones, we increase our brotherhood, we have merry time, we interact and solve our petty misgivings, we make life time memories. Rajkot or Saurashtra or Kathiawad is always famous for its hospitality, food and
entertainment. Let us be part of it and let us motivate our friends to be part of it- because IMA is our parent association which has always played pivotal role in life of each and every doctor.
Jay Hind, Jay IMA.
