‘Medivision 2020’ exhibition next March

The ‘Medivision 2020’ exhibition, organised by the Colombo University’s Medical Faculty to mark its 150th anniversary, is to be held at the university from March 30 to April 05, 2020.

The exhibition aims to inspire youth to become medical professionals. It will focus on how medicine has been practised in Sri Lanka during the past, as well as how it is being practised in the present.

Another theme the exhibition will focus on is health screening and promotion. The screening programme will be systematic and streamlined; it will include eye checks, dental screening, assessment of blood pressure and body mass index, as well as blood and urine tests.

Participants will receive personalised dietary advice and appropriate referral for further management of any diseases identified. A behavioural change approach through interactive sessions will highlight the impact of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs—and also help provide schoolchildren and youth the skills to avoid them.

The exhibition will also focus on the theme ‘Health Throughout the Life Cycle’. This will highlight how the human body changes with time, and our health needs evolve as we grow. This would give visitors the opportunity to understand pregnancy and childbirth, caring for newborns, child and adolescent health, as well as ageing.

Hands-on experience will also provided to the public so that they could see what actually happens in patient care. This would focus on topics such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), emergency room procedures, haemodialysis, forensic pathology, diagnosis of diseases, radiology, and genetics. The public will also be able to ask questions on any of the aforementioned topics.
