The efforts of the scholars to raise the health awareness of their community members continues. In the sixth small project for this year, Sofia Martinova ("Assistant Pharmacist" at the Medical College of Medical university-Varna) and Georgi Georgiev ("Medicine" at MU-Varna) conducted a campaign for the prevention of hypertension in the town of Dalgopol. The campaign included measuring blood pressure and providing guidelines for maintaining normal values. The young people collaborated with the local representatives of the National Network of Health Mediators.
Similar to the previous small projects, the one in Dalgopol also became an occasion for young people to tell the locals about themselves and to remind them that there is a generation of young and competent medical specialists of Roma origin coming forward, engaged in the health of their communities.
The initiative of the participants in the program for Scholarship Support for Roma Students Enrolled in Medical Studies is executed with TSA’s support, as part of the project for Mentorship support for Roma Students Enrolled in Medical Studies, within the framework of the Active citizens fund Bulgaria.
Active citizens fund Bulgaria is implemented with the financial support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021.
