BCS Partners With County For Community Awareness

October 7, 2016

Bhutanese Community In Syracuse (BCS), Inc., has partnered with Onondaga County Board Of Elections to organize a two hour long voting awareness session for its community members on Saturday, October 22 from 2pm.

According to the Board of Director of BCS, this get together entitled “Let’s Vote This Year” has been organized especially to the new citizens who are expected to vote in the presidential election in November. It has been learnt from the new citizens that they do not know how to cast the vote in a correct way. The event is expected to attract around 100 new citizens that have acquired the US citizenship through naturalization.

The experts from Onondaga County Board of Elections will teach the people about the voting procedures, rules and regulations, and answer any questions they may have.


Coinciding with the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BCS has also planned discussions, question-answer and presentations on breast cancer awareness on the same day following the first program. Although this event is mostly focused on the women group of the community, it is open to the the males also.

“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in females after skin cancer and the second most common cause of cancer related deaths in females worldwide. Nearly 40,000 females die of breast cancer yearly in the US. Early recognition and treatment of breast cancer is therefore very important to prevent premature deaths. Often, early breast cancer may not present with any symptoms and signs, and it may be too late when one finally sees the doctor. Therefore periodic medical exam and screening test especially mammograms are extremely important”, says Dr. Kamal Gautam, MD.


Dr. Gautam who is one of the presenters of the event belongs to the Bhutanese community as well, and will soon join Compassionate Family Medicine at 311 Green Street to provide medical care to the community. He is board certified in Internal Medicine.

Both events will take place at the office of Bhutanese Community In Syracuse at 710 Kirkpatrick St.

  1. Update Article says:

    I was very interested to attend the breast cancer awareness program and let’s vote awareness program. But because of the last minute personal problem/emergency, I was not able to attend it. I later inquire about the program. I heard it went well and it was very informative.
    I heard Dr. Gautam was not the presenter. It is Bikash Regmi, who did the presentation. So I am wondering, if BCS chairperson is giving credit to the family member? If this is the case, that is fine.
    I can totally understand, Dr. Gautam might have some change in schedule or emergency. We all are human, and we have emergencies. But I am wondering, if BCS need to update this information. BCS need to give credit to all the people who worked hard to make this event successful. If some body reads this article, they will think Dr. Gautam has given the presentation, which is not true. Are we just giving the credit to family members with out showing up in the event? I am hoping for the updated news article, which gives the true information not the fake one. Thank you.

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please follow the recent news regarding the event. BCS will never be in a favor of family members. It has always given credits to those who work tirelessly for BCS, and will continue that to everyone that will put the efforts to make any event/project successful. We hope you have been following the previous events and the related information and follow up news as well. The person behind the event has always been highlighted and credited. The previous news/information regarding the breast cancer awareness could not be updated due to the time constraint.

      Thank you-BCS
