The Indian Health Camp of New Jersey, in partnership with Shree Swaminarayan Temple, Secaucus, held its 17th Health Screening and Prevention Camp. The health camp was targeted toward New Jersey residents, aged 40 and above, who do not have health insurance. 

Volunteer healthcare professionals, including doctors and nurses, from across New Jersey and Secaucus Temple, gathered in Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Community Hall, on a Sunday morning, to give back to their community by providing quality health care to underprivileged patients. Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli joined and commended the efforts. 

Over 200 patients were provided thorough full body health checkups including comprehensive blood tests, EKGs, eye and dental checkups, cholesterol and diabetes screening, mental health services, physical therapy, flu shots, and colorectal cancer screening tests. In addition, 100 patients were administered flu shots. A large majority of our patient population is female, therefore special OBGYN counseling, mammogram appointments, and additional female cancer screening were provided in-house. After obtaining these tests, physicians sat and reviewed the results with each patient and provided detailed counseling. 

The Indian Health Camp of New Jersey continues its partnership with Secaucus Temple of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan to provide comprehensive healthcare to thousands of underprivileged patients all across New Jersey.
