We reached the venue at 9am. Room for screening was prepared for examination. There were two hall areas. On the ground floor we established registration and dispensing. On the first floor screening by students, and consultation with physicians was arranged. Students were divided into groups of 2 for registration, 2 for dispensing, 6 for screening, two for patient movement on rotation basis. Girl students took turn to see the colonoscopy being done.
We have identified 15 Gyneac cases for active follow up on priority.
