Free medical camp was organised by the Walnut Gurdwara, Walnut, California on Dec. 17, 2006 by association of NRI Dr. Rajivinder S. Brar, D.O.,Ph.D. along with 14 of his NRI students from Western University of Health.

This Clinic got very good response and about 40 patients from sangat visited for medical check ups and to get advise from the doctors. Many NRIs were screened for diabetes, blood pressure, heart diseases, geriatric ailments, etc.

Most of the Doctors at the Clinic where fluent in Punjabi and Hindi languages. They brought all the medical intruments and set up the Medical Clinic at the premises Gurmat School of Gurudwara Walnut. Gurudwara Walnut will be having this clinic for sangat once every month.

As health care costs increase and a growing number of NRIs are without insurance, the one health service that every family needs deserves further attention. In California, most of the NRIs are working in farming, gas station, grocery stores and in tranporting businesses. Those NRIs who are unemployed, the self-employed, and employees of small businesses get no insurance. NRIs will be needing medical treatment for such illnesses as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and stroke.

The number of Americans without health insurance went up 1.3 million from 45.3 million in 2004 to 46.6 million in 2005 - an increase from 15.6% to 15.9% of the country's population, says a new US Census Bureau report.

The Collector appealed to the NRIs to use the occasion and undergo screening as a preventive step.
