Tech Mahindra Foundation under its Employability vertical has launched Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare in Mumbai. Its third SMART Academy is in association with Auxilium Convent School, Pali Hill, which was conceptualized following the success of the first two healthcare academies in New Delhi and Mohali.

To strengthen the objectives of SMART Academies for Healthcare, Tech Mahindra Foundation recently launched the #MainBhiHero campaign that aims at creating awareness about the skill-gap of Paramedical Professionals in the country.
