Delivering Jamia Millia Islamia’s first C.V. Raman Memorial Lecture, Dr. G.N. Qazi, Vice-Chancellor, Hamdard University fore-grounded the philosophy of health and introduced the diverse paradigms in respect of medical and health care.
Addressing an audience that comprised of teaching faculty, research scholar and students, Dr. Qazi made an exposition of Complementary and Alternate Medicine (CAM) and emphasized that it needed to be brought forward for the promotion of integrative medicine in a country like India which has had traditional medicine systems like Ayurveda and Unani. He felt CAM was an unmet need for contemporary India and it required scientific stimulus to actualize its fullest potential.
The hugely attended lecture, organized as part of the 94th Foundation Day Celebrations, was chaired by the officiating Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Talat Aziz who underlined the need for Alternate Medicine for holistic health of individuals.
Prof. Jawaid Ahmed Khan, Head, Department of Bio-Sciences offered remarks on the presentation made by the noted scientist. Dr Baran Farooqi, representing the Outreach Programme, proposed the vote of thanks.
