It gives me immense pleasure to see the important social role Lady Hardinge Medical College is playing in furthering the cause of Body and Organ donation in India ‘Tribute to a Silent Teacher – The Human Body’ is a wonderful concept to promote organ and body donation as well as to sensitize undergraduate medical student about the issue. It is heartening to see LHMC , whose doctors have played a pivotal role in healthcare take the lead in the noble cause. It is extremely important to honour the contribution made by these 6 families by donating the bodies of their relatives to acknowledge their sacrifice and to set an example for the society. I’m also happy to know that students have played a major role in the campaign.
I congratulate the faculty members and students of LHMC for organizing this campaign. My best wishes to the Organizing committee for an unique initiative which is first of its kind in India.
