The UGM Faculty of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing (FKKMK) organized a charity of care for Covid-19.
The Medical Charity Concert (MERIDIAN) activity collaborated with the Gadjah Mada Medical / KAGAMADOK Alumni Family, Dr. Sardjito, and UGM Academic Hospital.
Dian Paramitasari, as the Public Relations of UGM FKKMK, revealed that MERIDIAN is an annual charity program held by FK-KMK UGM. Nevertheless, this time, there were some partners collaborating in this event. This event also raised a virtual concept in the entire program activities, both for the fundraising and seminars.
“Next, all ticket sales in MERIDIAN 2020 will be later donated to frontline health workers and people affected by Covid-19 in the regions of Kalimantan, Papua, and Lombok,” she said in a release received on Friday (13/11).
Dian said this charity concert dedicated to helping the community and medical workers at the front of the Covdi-19 pandemic in Kalimantan, Lombok, and Papua through FK-KMK UGM alumni in these areas. Besides, it was also necessary to discern and outline the needs in the targeted areas related to funding needs, PPE, and logistics.
Next, develop science in the form of seminars on Integrated Management of Autoimmune Diseases and Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Mental Health.
“We raised this topic because it is infrequently discussed while the disease number was increasing from year to year,” she said.
The series of MERIDIAN 2020 events begins with the Seminar Series on 7 and 8 November 2020, from 10:00 to 12:00 virtually with doctors, nurses, and nutritionists as sources.
Virtual charity concerts and talk shows will be held on Sunday, November 15, 2020, at 9 am. 18.30-21.30 and broadcast live from the Auditorium of the Tahir Postgraduate Building FK-KMK UGM and enlivened by alumni as well as the Academic Community and Hospitalia Dr. Sardjito and RSA UGM.
This charity concert is also completed with a talk show about health philanthropy and the sharing of frontline medical workers and performances from various generations of alumni and the FK-KMK UGM community as the major concepts in this charity concert.
Hopefully, throughout this activity, it enriches knowledge for seminar participants about the importance of multidisciplinary, interprofessional integrated handling. Besides this, it would also become a meeting place and FKKMK UGM alumni’s contribution to share the country’s morality and benefits.
