SPEAK India’s Health Conclave on March 3 at PGI
Society for promotion of ethical and affordable health care is organizing a conclave on March 3, at 10 am onwards in collaboration with PGI. The venue is the auditorium of Advanced Pediatric centre. The theme of the conclave is ‘reducing spending on wasteful and unethical medical practices’, according to Dr. R.Kumar, President SPEAK India. Eminent doctors from among all over the country will advise on protocol for interventions in various specialties so that wasteful practices can be curtailed and medical treatment made affordable. Another message is that by focusing on wellness the country can reduce the role of doctors and hospitals by 70-80%.
