Touro College on Global Health Mission in India
Dipan Ray, Ph.D., director of practice experience at Touro College of Pharmacy in Harlem (middle), and Ravi Shah, a doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) candidate at the College (right), work together to interview a patient at a makeshift “health camp” in New Delhi. They were part of a team of six students and three faculty members who recently ventured to the slums of India where most of the residents lack access to primary health care. They gathered information on diet, past medical history and current medications in order to provide an optimal check up.
