Outreach

Continuous efforts are taken by MDCRC to make the registry expansive. For this, members from the MDCRC team attend the monthly Neuro Muscular Disorders clinic at National Institute of Mental Health And Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore on the 4th Saturday of every month. Various Neuro Muscular Disorders(NMD) are thoroughly screened for, out of which pediatric neuro muscular disorders such as DMD and SMA are referred to our centre for carrying out genetic analysis.

We also screen patients once in two months from Myopathy Kappagam, Veeravanallur & also at Amar Seva Sangam, Ayakudi, Tirunelveli district. MDCRC also conducts out-reach programs in the rural areas viz., Information, Education, Communication (IEC) activities towards awareness of these disorders. MDCRC also organizes training programs for the staff of health departments and screening camps for children with the help of the public health system.
