While HEALTH IS WEALTH is a common saying , Health is all the more significant to the women folk in the society as she is the fulcrum of any given family. AASC joined hands with CII IWN Puducherry chapter to organise for a health awareness programme to the girl students and lady staff members of the college. The programme was meant to alert the girls and the women audience to understand the vitality of their health ( which they often ignore) and its success on the family, neighbourhood and society in terms of performance and quality of life . Mrs. Anu Sriram, Co founder and joint CMD presided the day’s programme as the CII IWN chairperson. The Guests were renowned doctors from JIPMER. The awareness programme had 4 sessions as 1. Nutrition and Health of college girls-Dr Sonali Sarkar, Asso Prof, Dept of PSM, JIPMER 2. Problem of PCOS in young girls-Dr. Divya Nair, PG Resident, Dept of PSM, JIPMER 3. Breast Self Examination – Kr. Kalaiselvi, Senior Resident, Dept of PSM, JIPMER 4.Prevention of Reproductive Tract Infections (HIV/AIDS, Ca Cx)Dr. R Sairekha, Asst. Prof, Dept of O&G, JIPMER. It was a real eye opener to our students and staff and we owe a great deal of gratitude to IWN and the doctors as resource persons. Students doubts were cleared on specific quesitons and it was a session of meaningful value addition. The conduct of this programme certainly reflects Achariya’s true concern for the good health and fitness of their family members..
