GUWAHATI, June 26 - With an emphasis on preventive healthcare initiatives for mediapersons, a special programme titled �Evening with a Doctor� is being mooted at the Guwahati Press Club (GPC).
Under this programme a practising doctor will be available for free consultations on healthcare issues for the benefit of GPC member-journalists along with their close relatives.
The doctor, representing any government or private hospital, will arrive at the Press Club every Saturday by 5 pm and continue with consultations till 8 pm. A number of city-based hospitals have already agreed to support the initiative of the Press Club. The hospitals will be providing qualified physicians from their various departments to the programme on a regular basis.
The programme, scheduled to start from next month, is also expected to help the interested scribes to understand various aspects of healthcare in a better way that would finally encourage them to cover the vital issue with more authenticities, said a GPC statement.
