Dear All, 

We are pleased to share with you a presentation entitled- “Expanding Definitions of Health & Its Relevance for Doctors & Society”. We all know that the WHO defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. With the huge disparity and variety in our society and culture, does health mean different things to different people? What role do Doctors have in promoting such an inclusive concept of health? Does it also have any bearing on the way we do, or can, practice medicine? We discussed some of these issues on the occasion of World Health Day (April 7, 2014 at Indian Medical Association Branch, Kota, Rajasthan, India). Your suggestion are welcome! Thanks. Dr Suresh K Pandey, Kota.
