The team of doctors that conducted the camp comprised Jagdev Singh Kehal, Vinod Dakar, Sarbji Singh and Anil Arora.

The doctors in the camp said poor intake of calcium in diet, leads to fragile and weaker bones and particularly women are more prone to development of osteoporosis, due to breast feeding and poor dietary calcium content.
