World Hepatitis Day

  • 2023-07-28

In order to commensurate World hepatitis day on 28th July 2023, the Department of Biochemistry and Department of Microbiology together organized an integrated lecture on the topic of Hepatitis for the 1st year MBBS students on 28th 11am to 1 pm in the Biochemistry demo room. Dr. Sanjukta Naik, Assistant Professor from the Department of Biochemistry and Dr. Ashutosh Rawat, HOD and professor from the Department of Microbiology talked about all the important aspects of hepatitis that included function of liver, causes, its clinical signs and symptoms to timely diagnosis, prophylaxis and immunization. All the faculty members were present in the session.The theme for world hepatitis day this year was “one life one liver”. Hepatitis is often referred to as the “silent epidemic” due to its widespread prevalence as it lacks visible symptoms in the early stages. World Hepatitis Day, recognized annually on July 28, provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis. In 2016, the World Health Assembly endorsed the elimination of viral hepatitis as a public health threat, including elimination of mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis B by 2030. Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of hepatitis B is the primary source of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, the leading cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer.To embark this day by aiming to shed light on the biochemical intricacies and timely diagnosis of the disease to make this country hepatitis free, we thus concluded the session with a story followed by a group photograph.Faculty members and Post graduate students, department of biochemistry & microbiology, SDTU and MBBS graduates students.

Learning outcomes:

Continuing Medical Education (CME):

Seminars offer valuable opportunities for medical professionals to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. CME is essential for maintaining licensure, certifications, and staying current with medical best practices, new treatment modalities, and advancements in medical technology.

Professional Development:

Attending medical seminars provides medical professionals with the chance to enhance their clinical skills, keep abreast of emerging medical trends, and learn about the latest medical equipment and technologies. These opportunities contribute to continuous professional development and improved patient care.

Addressing Clinical Challenges:

Seminars often include case presentations, panel discussions, and workshops that address clinical challenges and complex medical cases. Collaborative problem-solving in such settings can lead to improved patient management strategies and novel treatment approaches.
