Bhopal:MMNN: 21 Jun 2018

The National M.Sc Medical Teachers Association (NMMTA) conducted a symposium titled Role of Biomedical Scientists in New India at YWCA Delhi. The symposium holds significance as the members of this association, who are biomedical scientists with medical M.Sc postgraduate degree in the non-clinical subjects, feel that the government is neglecting them. If was held in the backdrop of MCIs proposal to reduce and eliminate the appointment of biomedical scientists as non-medical teachers. We are a part of the healthcare, medical education and research since several decades but our roles arent duly recognized, said Dr. Sridhar Rao, President of NMMTA. India has a large pool of talent and manpower of biomedical scientists, which must be utilized by the government to address the deficiencies in healthcare, medical education and research, he added. There are lakhs of diagnostic laboratories across the country but not sufficient specialized doctors to practice there. The ministry of Health and Family Welfare must amend the guidelines of Clinical Establishment Act to utilize the services of biomedical scientists to counter this shortage, said Arjun Maitra, Secretary of NMMTA. Inaugurating the symposium, Sudhansh Pant, Joint Secretary (medical education), MoHFW stated unfortunately, when one talks of medical education, the role of M.Sc teachers somehow gets relegated to the background a little bit. The role of M.Sc teachers is crucial. Whatever best possible can be done for this segment within the overall framework of rules and regulations will definitely be looked into with full responsibility. Dr. S.Rajesh, director-health, NITI Aayog, who was the guest of honor stressed the importance of biomedical scientists in the development of diagnostic kits. Dr. Heena Tabassum, representing the ICMR highlighted the various research opportunities and financial grants sponsored by the ICMR. Dr. Daman Saluja, Director of B.R Ambedkar Institute of Biomedical Sciences described the different fields of biomedical research and its impact on healthcare and public health. Dr. Jayashri Sengupta, former Professor & HOD, AIIMS Delhi highlighted the role of Basic Sciences to evolve the Indian medical students into a thinking doctor.

Dr.Rekha.A.Pathak, a consultant in Nanavati Hospital, who has been the director, Head & Professor of J.J.Group of hospitals, updated the doctors with this new discovery. Dr. Lekha .A. Pathak was here in Bhopal to visit the 3rd round of the occasion of Cardiology, Diabitology & Electro-cardiology. This pill helps in controlling Blood Pressure as well. POLIPILL is a mixture of different medicines. This pill is not available in the market yet. More research is on the way to launch it in the market

"Walk Your Way To Life"

Walking is the best form of exercise. It is low-impact on the joints and high-impact in results. It burns calories on per-mile basis equivalent to running (average 100 per mile for an adult, only the distances vary). Labeled as leisurely exercise though, it offers a great workout for the entire body. But how to make it better? Increase pace, not the stride. Walk at a brisk speed of 12-13 min per mile (4.5 mph) from an ordinary walk of 3 mph.

Secret: Take more steps per minute at a normal stride. Do not increase stride. Longer stride in less time causes fatigue and is less effective.

Line Yourself: Olympic and other elite race-walkers swing their hips more often than the sedentary folks do. Their feet move in line, as opposed to walking with legs at shoulder width.

Proper arms movement: Swinging arms correctly are necessary. Arms should be bent at the elbow at an 85 degree angle, and should be pumped close to the body from the lower breast bone to the back of the hips. This actually propels the body forward, and helps achieve a quicker and shorter stride.
