RC Pune Sports City, RID 3131, organised a medical checkup and treatment camp at Tav, a remote village on the banks of the backwaters of the Panshet Dam near Pune. Club members Dr Madhav Kankawale and Dr Rajesh Pawar led the camp that helped screen and treat 180 tribal people. The screening included mammography and Pap smear tests besides all other routine  check-ups. Spectacles sponsored by club member Brij Sethi were provided to 80 people with vision defects and 21 villagers with cataract were treated a week after the camp. “Almost all the people were found to have vitamin deficiency and 80 people were anaemic. So we distributed multi-vitamin tonics and tablets too,” said club president Kiran Rao.
