Awareness Programme About Dengue in CGC Jhanjeri

Experts speak on ‘Dengue’ & ‘How to keep physically fit’
 
With a view to create awareness among its students and staff, Chandigarh Group of Colleges Jhanjeri organized an expert talk on “Prevention of Dengue” and “How to keep yourself physically fit”. Dr. Sachin Verma M.D. (Internal Medicine) delivered a talk on various preventive measures which can keep us safe from Dengue. Dr. Verma is Head, Deptt of Infectious Disease, Ivy Hospital Mohali. He strongly believes in providing affordable treatment to all. For this he started Holy Basil Mediclinic having its branches at Kharar, Chunni, Morinda etc where they give minimum possible medicines and try to treat a person as an outdoor patient & avoid admitting him in the hospital so that his expenses remain minimum. In view of this approach they call their hospital as ‘Day Care Centre’. Dr. Verma explained major symptoms of this fever & advised the students not to get panicky if someone known to them happens to catch this problem. He also appealed to students to donate blood in case some patient needed the same for increasing his blood platelets immediately. This expert talk by Dr. Verma was followed by an extremely useful lecture by Dr. Santosh Thakur, MPT Ortho, on ‘How to keep yourself physically fit”. Dr. Thakur said that today physiotherapy has become an essential part of orthopedics. These days, immediately after operating upon a patient, doctors advise him to start walking & start putting load on his operated parts. He gave various tips to students for keeping physically fit.
 
S.Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, President CGC conveyed that CGC is highly conscious about physical fitness of its students. For this we have provided gymnasiums with ultra modern equipments in Boys Hostel as well as Girls Hostel. Further, our students take a lot of interest in sports. Dr. G.D.Bansal, Director General supplemented the views of Mr. Dhaliwal & informed that within a short span of five years, the students of CGC Jhanjeri have won 5 trophies & more than 50 gold, silver & bronze medals in various sports competitions organized by PTU, Jalandhar.
