I had a wonderful practicum experience wherein I was able to achieve my learning objectives efficiently.
There were enough volunteers to help patients fill the questionnaires. My practicum project gave me first hand experience of role of patient's awareness and their level of education in the prevention of health diseases. From public health perspectives it is very important to increase the awareness of people about common health diseases and how to prevent them in order to reduce the burden of diseases. I developed keen knowledge of role of public health and its initiatives to lower the burden of disease. This will always help me to acknowledge the need to address different aspects in order to reduce disease and promote health. It also reinforced my belief in one of the ways of addressing community needs is by conducting ecological study. I was equally impressed by the various philanthropic activities under-taken by the Kalgidhar Society and my site supervisor, Dr. Manmohan Singh Atwal's commitment and selfless service in the field of public health. The long term professional relationship which I developed with Dr. Atwal, will help me to work globally on various projects in future.
