n the occasion of World Heart Day on 29th September, 2016, NSS students of GITAM Institute of Management took out an awareness rally on the campus. The rally was very helpful in raising awareness about the high rate of heart diseases especially in India and the ways and means to prevent the same.
World Heart Day was founded in 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading causes of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year. Each year’s celebrations have a different theme, reflecting key issues and topics relating to heart health. This year the World Heart Day theme is creatingheart-healthy environments. The places in which we live, work and play should not increase our risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). We may not be able to control many factors but we can definitely make heart-healthy choices in the places where we live, work and play.
In relation to the 2016 theme, students carried banners and placards with useful information, tips and slogans throughout the campus, delivering short speeches and performing skits. A large number of students and faculty participated in the initiative. The rally was actively led by Prof. P. Sheela, Principal, GITAM Institute of Management and organized by Dr. Shaikh Shamshuddin, NSS Co-ordinator, GITAM Institute of Management. NSS GITAM University Co-ordinator Prof. Veerendra Swamy was also present and encouraged the students.
