IMA President Dr Anil Hans was happy to see the positive response of the residents. He said, "We gave special attention to female patients, as breast cancer is quite common now. We had a special mammography van. Blood pressure, lipid profile and bone-density tests were also done, and spot reports were given to the patients.”

RWA president Sonu Yadav said, "This was a great step and many people benefited from the camp. Particular attention was paid to female patients. I am thankful to all the doctors who came for the camp.”

Monika Dhanda, one of the residents, said, "I came for routine tests, but they offered to do a mammogram. Such camps should be organised more frequently.”
