Epilepsy Health Camp Sept 2016
Posted on 21 October 2016
I am just back from our second Epilepsy health camp in Beni. There was a great turnout and our team worked very hard to see over 40 patients. These patients had been identified by our two field health workers over the last few months and all are from remote villages.
Our team included one of the top Neurologists from Kathmamdu. He was able to see the patients and prescribe the necessary medicine. Without our support many of the patients of our patients would never get the chance to be seen by such a Doctor due to the distance they would need to travel and the costs included.
Our team also works hard on awareness and education on Epilepsy. We had a room set up where we showed our Epilepsy awareness video throughout the day and our team had a Q&A session after each showing.
Our team will now monitor and support all the patients when they return home.
A big thank you for all the support. We are bringing first class treatment and support for people living with Epilepsy from this remote part of Nepal.
More news will follow shortly.
