The two-day camp, beginning from September 19, will see participation of consultants in various fields of paediatric multi-speciality, from different institutions, Dr. M. Pradeep Kumar, Head, Gene Omm Medical Centre, told reporters here.
Though not visible to the external world, the doctors feel the trauma, agony, pain, sufferings and helplessness that the families of such children, even grown-ups, with genetic disorders, some time called as abnormal children, Dr. Pradeep said.
The camp will identify problem in the children and get holistic and multi-disciplinary
