Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Health Education provides knowledge on health related aspects and develops the attitude of people to maintain sound health. There are many factors that affect our health, its everyone’s right to know about the factors affecting it and the instructions to attain positive health.
As students are the backbone of our college, health of every student is very important so we decided to organised health checkups to all students of our college. With this idea we approached Dr.R.Shivaprasad B.Sc,MBBS, he happily accepted our request and planned to conduct checkups every Tuesdays and Fridays at 3 PM in health center of all working days in batches of 50 students a day. An allotment was planned and Proctors of all class were informed to assemble the students for checkups. The Height, Weight of each student was recorded and students underwent regular medical examination, If any further investigation was needed the students were recalled for checkups and intimated to parents if any serious issues where found.
The health check program ran successfully for more than 25 weeks and we completed checkups of all students with the support of all staff and students. An Interactive session was organized with doctor on 12th March 2019 at 3 pm in seminar hall where students discussed about their doubts regarding health and doctor clarified each and every students.
