On 14th August 2017,we held our 19th Annual General Meeting at Sumo Bar Happy. It was a fabulous evening sponsored by Zoll. We rallied together to support the campaign Pledge It Forward as an association, which seeks to increase the number of pledgers, rather than focusing on the amount donated. We were also inspired by our wonderful speaker, Dr Sudha Nair and her groundbreaking works on family violence in Singapore.
It’s been an eventful quarter indeed ! In the spirit of pledging our time & efforts forward, in September we also held a free CPR/AED seminar, training over a hundred ladies in the DARE programme (#daretosaveaheart) at the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations. These life-saving skills are skills you learn to help someone else, never yourself.
Later this month in October we will continue to train ladies from the Chinese Women’s Association in the same skills in order to increase the bystander awareness of doing cpr and using an AED in someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
In November we will celebrate Thanksgiving at Tag Heuer boutique as it has been a wonderful year.
The Association of Women Doctors Singapore has accomplished so much due to your support !
