As part of pharmacy practice services, we the final year B. Pharm students and M.Pharm (Pharmacology) students have taken up the task of patient counseling, in KGH, once in a week i.e. on every Thursday, to actively involve in Anti- Diabetic campaign. Our objective is to provide drug information services to medical fraternity and to patients. We are interacting with patients, particularly diabetic patients, and explaining to them about the nutritional requirements to be taken, analyzing height and weights, hip waist diameter ratio. We are also sharing with them the medication administration and dosing frequency with pre and post prondial advice on the basis of literature available in the leaflets provided to us under the supervision of our Vijaya Ratna madam and Eswar Kumar sir.

We were extremely happy and enthusiastic to take part in these activities as we are exposing ourselves to the sufferings and needs of society, at the same time we are enjoying the sweats of nobility of profession i.e.. Service to Mankind, so I take this opportunity to thank our Vijaya ratna madam for involving us in such a noble activity. We also promise you madam to make your vision possible.
