State President and Hon. State Secretary’s message-July2015
Dear and Respected Colleagues,
We are almost completing 6 months. We will take stalk and plan for future.
We are really glad to know that many members like the idea of donating one hour per week for IMA. We have started taking their voluntary services for the Association. We request the members to be active and take interest in the affairs of IMA especially to the young generation.
You the active IMA members resolve to day now that out of your own doctor friends you will make 1-2 new active members in IMA from the existing members. We need new 5 percent members attend at least 80 percent programmes. Induce participation of inactive members by active members.
IMA GSB is in a way to form Young Doctors Wing. Dr. Parth Desai has been given the responsibility. We want the involvement of young generation and new ideas. Your suggestions are welcomed. Similarly IMA Gujarat State Branch has planned to form Medical Students Wing. IMA Gujarat State Branch has planned to organize one or two programmes for the interest of the above two groups.
We are nearing 25,000 figure. However registered medical graduates are much more in Gujarat. We need to get all of them with us. Most of the doctors who are not members need to be approached. We all have to make an effort to identify and rope them in.
Along with this, we have to improve our . For a better public image, we need to go on multi front and be positive. One such front is public awareness, education and removing generalmisconcepts on some topics. Indian Medical Association has identified few of them like IMA Knowledge, Care for Elderly, Aao Gaon Chalen, Disaster Management Cell, Pharmaco Vigilance, Life Style Disease Awareness, T. B. Notification, IMA Road Traffic
Accident Awareness, IMA Maternal Mortality rate reduction initiative & IMA Prevention of Blindness in Diabetes etc. I request the local branch secretaries to report the various activities done with regards to the above initiatives.
On 14th June, IMA Gujarat State Branch has organized a very good programme on a less discussed topic – Child Sexual Abuse with the help of IMA HQ and UNICEF. Hon. Secretary General Dr. K. K. Aggarwal, and Hon. Finance Secretary, Dr. R. N. Tandon from IMA HQs were present. It was a day long programmes and members were taking active participation even at 5 p.m. IMA Gujarat State Branch thanks all the members and participants from the various medical colleges not only of Gujarat but from whole western region. IMA HQs appreciated the teamwork of IMA GSB especially of Dr. Mahendra Desai, Dr. Bipinbhai Patel, Dr. Kamlesh Saini & Dr. Parth Desai.
