To raise awareness among the students regarding Tobacco and its harmful effects, a virtual seminar was organised by the Faculty of Education. The event helped in raising awareness about the health hazards of tobacco consumption in the students and their family members. This was displayed by a presentation and handmade posters by college students.
Associate Dean, Dr. Manjula Jain judged the event. While interacting with students she said, “Tobacco causes 8 million deaths every year. Evidence released this year shows that smokers were more likely to develop severe disease with COVID-19 compared to non-smokers. Cigarettes contain about 600 ingredients which after burning generate more than 7,000 chemicals and at least 69 of them are linked to cancer”.
So if you care about your family, then Quit Smoking, added Dr. Manjula Jain.
