Dr Inder Paul Singh & Sikh Community’s ‘Seva’ Through Health Fairs

Health Fair Dr Inder Paul Singh


Atlanta, GA, Oct 2012: A heath fair was organized by North Lake Family Medicine under the guidance of Dr. Inder Paul Singh on Sept 22nd at the Concord Baptist Church in Boulder Park area.

Medical Services provided included BP check, glucose test, hemoglobin test, ankle brachial index test, electrocardiogram (EKG) test, blood tests including complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, cholesterol panel, thyroid test, prostate specific antigen (for males). Flu shots were given free of charge and doctors/nurses provided free consultations to all the patients who were present.

Dr. Singh has been in private practice for the last 15 years and continues to be on staff at DeKalb Medical Center and as Medical Director of Northlake Family Medicine. Dr. Singh’s interest in charity and community volunteer work started when he moved to Atlanta in 1995 and started doing yearly health fairs at the Gurudwara in Stone Mountain.  Recognizing the needs of the un-insured patients in the community, he founded the First Aid Health Center in 2002 on the premises of the Gurudwara in Stone Mountain along with Dr. Satwant Nagpal, a fellow family practitioner.  The clinic provided services three days per week free of charge to anyone who needed medical treatment. This clinic continues even today in its original form after moving to Sadh Sangat Gurudwara in Tucker Georgia in 2007.  Free consultations are provided every Sunday after the temple services to everyone. 

Dr. Singh and other medical volunteers from the Sikh community have been doing health fairs in the Atlanta community for many years including the annual Festival of India, local American churches and various Gurudwaras.

The medical team of volunteers at the Concord church offered their “seva” and the hosts appreciated the much needed service.

“We want to thank Mrs. Chinti Bali, our first aid health center nurse along with Dr. Manjeet Kaur, dentist and first aid health center dental consultant for setting up this health fair in the community,” said Dr Singh.

“We thank everyone who gave their valuable time for this seva and we are planning to do more of these health fairs in the community to spread the word about Sikhism and the concept of seva, which is an integral part and pillar of our religion.” Dr. Paul said.

Other upcoming projects include health fairs in other community centers including Global Mall and Food for Homeless.

To volunteer your time and any further question you may call Mrs. Chinti Bali, First Aid Health Center Nurse (678)591-0420 or Dr. Inderpaul Singh, Medical Director of First Aid Health Center (404)819-5415.
