Bhavan’s Smart Indian School held a health awareness lecture by Dr. Hannah from the Ministry of Health. The lecture aimed to enlighten students on the effective impact of hygiene on health. Doubts on hygiene and other issues raised by the students were also answered by Dr. Hannah.
Health literacy was dealt effectively by highlighting three major crisis that teen students are likely to face. The psychological stress that breeds tension and mental illness was elaborately explained along with its consequences and ill-effects on human minds. The health impact of consuming junk and fast foods was also explained to the students by Dr. Hannah, while underscoring that obesity was one of the consequences of following an unhealthy and unstable diet. Importance of taking care of hygiene and becoming aware of neglecting it were also stressed in the lecture.
Students vowed to apply the lessons they learned during the lecture into their daily life.
