“Once we secure land clearance from Indian Oil, Delhi, we would go for more support systems, infrastructures and enhanced health care services for the people in and around Digboi, Phukan said, who has also been the president of the Hospital Management Committee for past seven years.
Meanwhile, Gogoi, the ED of AOD Digboi aptly apprised the house with a comparative look at the lifestyle of the confined people in present day society with that of the primitive men who were food gatherers leading a nomadic life involving physical works.
“We are confined to works like a robot without much physical involvement which is one of the potential reasons for blockage in veins and arteries that also pave the way for accumulation of bad cholesterol in our body,” said Gogoi who is a gym fanatic.
“Timely diagnosing is as important as the treatment itself which one should prefer off and on to avoid sudden and uncalled disaster,” said the health enthusiast top AOD official adding, “The medical aids and equipment which the AOD has donated today would definitely help the people. I assure you of all possible help and support for the people in and around Digboi with whatever resources allowed within the preview of the AOD CSR purse,” assured Gogoi.
Beside the medical staff, the representatives of AOC Labour Union, office bearers of the hospital management committee also attended the programme.
