A journal containing articles on recent developments in the field of gynecology was published during the 25th annual Continuing Medical Education (CME) program of the Tiruchi Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (TRIOGS) here on Sunday.
The TRIOGS Journal, which contains approximately 25 articles on interesting topics and current advances in the field, was published by Mr. Subburaman, Founder of the Society for Community Organization and People’s Education (SCOPE), and was hosted by Revathy Kailairajan , Dean S.R.M. Medical College.
Speaking at the inauguration, Mr Subburaman said empowering women in rural areas is the need of the hour as open defecation seems to be a common practice there. “The impossibility of building toilets was one of the fundamental problems that prevented their economic development,” he said. He also called for educating marginalized women on environmentally friendly sanitation.
Jashmitha, a student at KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College, was awarded Dr. Ponnammal’s Gold Medal for her genius in the field.
According to Dr Kailairajan, majority of pregnant women in India are anemic and sleep deprivation at night has been shown to be carcinogenic. She also urged people to undergo regular health checks.
Scientific sessions, workshops and round tables on various topics related to women’s health and well-being were organized. “The CME organized under the theme ‘Get up to date to make more women smile’ would inform gynecologists about the latest advances and treatment methods,” said the society secretary, S. Lakshmi Prabha.
Malathy G Prasad President of TRIOGS; Rameswari Nallusamy, Chief Obstetrician of Rana Hospital, members of TRIOGS and others took part in the event.
