VT Seva Nashville Conducted Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Seminar, Feb 26th, 2017
VT Seva Nashville Chapter instituted in January 2017.
We started small by collecting some winter clothing for the underserved in Nashville and collected about 150 items ( coats/sweaters)
As a podium to introduce VT Seva to the Nashville community, we conducted a Breast and Cervical Cancer awareness program.
Following a brief introduction of VT Seva activities by Nishitha Reddy.
Youth committee members, Ms. Amritha ans Ms. Shriya Karam presented the outline of the education program and a personal experience of her recent visit to the School for the Blind at Hyderabad.
Dr. Saritha Voncha Reddy ( Family Practice physician) presented the current guidelines on breast and cervical cancer. She encouraged and educated all the attendees on the need for screening. Dr. Nishitha Reddy (Hematologist/Oncologist) discussed the importance of early detection and the high cure rates with latest treatment modalities.
This was followed by an excellent presentation of Yoga and wellness by our Nashville Yoga Mastero Mrs. Sujatha Yarlagadda. That yoga is not to be considered as a physical activity alone but to train oneself as a whole by combining the mind and body to recognize your inner self. The personal journey of her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment was shared with those attended that was indeed personable to many.
The discussion ended with an engaging audience seeking answers. The program was attended by well over 60 members.
A special thanks to our volunteers: Dr. Saritha Voncha Reddy, Kondal Voncha Reddy, Janak Ashok, Teja Sashank, Venkatesh Paidakula, Ashok Bhaskarudu, Dr. Jyotheen Karam and our youth Volunteers: Ms. Amirtha, Ms. Shriya Karam, Arnav Reddy, Dhruv Reddy and Ms. Esha Karam Photogrpahy: Anitha Gautham
