“Our health is our greatest treasure”. Taking care of our health is utmost important for everyone. But in our daily life, we keep on looking for excuses to not visit our doctor. Be it for saving money or for other reasons like I am too young and healthy to go to a doctor or I don’t have time today; may be next week, I’ll get an appointment, and hence we keep on ignoring our health.
We do not understand a simple fact that performing regular health check – ups from young age can actually save many lives. Saving some bucks today by ignoring periodic check-ups, we increase the risk of occurrence of several health issues in future.
In order to raise the awareness regarding regular health check-ups, so as to improve the quality of life and enjoy good health throughout your life & on the occasion of 350th Birthday of Guru Govind Singh Ji , a free medical health check-up camp was organised by GAPIO member Dr Ashish Aneja in association with GAPIO & DWS for faculty, staff and students on 6th January ,2017 (10:00 AM to 3: 00 PM) at University health centre , K.
