On July 29, 2017, the Department’s SY Students conducted an ISR activity in the form of an awareness drive, which was conducted through a poster exhibition on “Emerging Infections in Population”. Six Teachers and 32 Students of the Department participated in the drive.
Emerging infectious diseases are infections that have recently appeared within a population, or those whose incidence or geographic range is rapidly increasing, or threatens to increase in the near future. Various viruses, bacteria and parasites are affecting living organisms. In some cases their incidence is limited tocertain geographical areas, but in future may spread throughout the world, causing pandemics.
The Department, therefore, organised an awareness drive to give information about infections caused by viruses, microbes such as Avian flu virus, Zika virus, Ebola virus, Mumps virus, Leishmaniasis parasite, Japanese encephalitis virus, H1N1 virus and Elizabethkingia Meningoseptica bacteria.
The Students were divided into groups of eight. Each group was assigned an infection to study. They were expected to research the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and preventive measures to be taken, and present the information in a simple and accessible form as posters.
This poster exhibition was visited by members of the Teaching and Non-teaching Staff of the College, as well as Students and Parents.
