Dr. Chandrakant Patil Memorial Health Dialogue

Liver Foundation, West Bengal aims to uphold the values and commitments of the health profession. In a society and time, when the terms called "profit" and "welfare" are fast changing positions as priorities, and a mix of the two is clouding health system objectives and professional targets, Dr. Chandrakant Patil was a refreshing exception. A young doctor from a low income family, he aspired to serve people of the country living at the socio-economic margins. A 24 year old young Dr. Patil died when lightning hit him while working amongst flood affected people in Sopaul district, Bihar.

We are committed to uphold his exemplary professional dedication and commitment. From 2008, Liver Foundation organizes a health dialogue on a socially relevant public health issue. It has been titled Dr. Chandrakant Patil Memorial Health Dialogue.
