304. MissionCast – The Gift of Life – Ludhiana CMC

Haiti

Now at the Ludhiana Christian Medical College, in India, they are able to do pediatric cardiac surgery for a little less than $6,000 per child. The parents pay $1,000 if they are able, the surgeons do not charge their fees, the hospital subsidizes the surgery and generous donors contribute $5,000 for each surgery. In this MissionCast, Dr. Bedi tells about the difference between heart surgery for children and adults. You will also meet some of the children needing the surgery for repairing the holes in their hearts they have been suffering from since birth.

287. Ludhiana CMC Medical Rural Outreach

Haiti

Take a moment to visit the village of Guiana, in Northwest India, and meet some of the children in the local grade school. Also meet Dr. Neeta Kang, head of Innovation, at the Betty Cowan Center for Research and Innovation, which is the research arm of the Ludhiana Christian Medical College and Hospital. And meet Namita Azad a graduate student from Madison, Wisconsin who just arrived in Ludhiana to do two months of research for her thesis.
The village of Guiana is experiencing a higher incidence of cancer than other areas in the state of Punjab. For this reason the village was chosen by the Betty Cowan Center to give free screening and counseling to the women of the village and to educate the grade school children about cancer and what families can do if cancer occurs.
This three minute video will transport you to the village to be with the people for a few minutes. For more information about the Ludhiana Christian Medical College and Hospital or the Betty Cowan Center for Research and Innovation contact Max Marble, Executive Director of the Ludhiana Christian Medical College Board USA at MarbleLCMC@gmail.com
