Governor tells doctors to be service-oriented

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala on Friday urged medical professionals to serve the poor and the society.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the Golden Jubilee Conference of Indian Speech and Hearing Association organised by Mysuru Chapter of the Indian Speech and Hearing Association (MyISHA), at All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH), the Governor said that the doctors should not demand more money from the poor for providing medical care.

The medical professionals should be service-minded and not have a business mindset. In earlier days, Maharajas struggled for the welfare of the people and now, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is doing pro-people works. Vala said that with technology, there are numerous opportunities for research.

Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar, member of the erstwhile royal family, who was the guest of honour for the event recalled the contribution of the Wadiyars towards AIISH. Jayachamaraja Wadiyar, who visited a speech and hearing institute in America in 1959, decided to establish a similar institute in India. In 1965, he donated 22-acre land for the construction of AIISH, he said.

Audiologists and speech-language pathologists from India and abroad will attend the conference, which includes scientific session. Experts will deliver lectures on topics such as language recovery in Aphasia, pediatric feeding disorders, and intervention, professional voice management, motor speech disorders in neuro-developmental syndromes, dead regions of the cochlear, clinical applications of OAE, cross-check principles in Diagnostic Audiology, certification of disability and funding opportunities for aids and appliances.

The conference enables the professionals to provide better clinical services to those with communication problems. In addition, around 220 research papers will be presented by the students and the professionals.
