  • SNEHITA WOMEN’S HEALTH FOUNDATION is a charitable trust which focuses on health issues of women. Snehita team led by Dr.Regi Jose conducted a Breast Cancer Awareness and Screening Camp at Kollam on the 23rd of August 2016, facilitated by us (PENVEEDU Girls Hostel). We have received very good feedbacks on Doctor Regi Jose's dedication from the public. Especially on the simple way of communication,way of interaction with the public and the required time spent with each attendees etc. This shows Doctor's sincerity and dedication. Some of the attendees shared their experience of attending similar Camps but haven't noticed such dedication from the Doctor's side which made this Camp different. Dr. Regi Jose's dedication has been widely appreciated and acknowleged and we, PENVEEDU managment hereby say big THANKS to the Doctor on behalf of the public who attended the Camp on 23rd August at Kollam. Wishing all the success to Team SNEHITA.
