PGI has launched a campaign for good health especially for students. They are conducting a yearlong study on the effects of various good health practices, including diet, yoga and meditation.
It is a reassertion of things we have known for millennia but need to revisit. The School of Public Health, PGI has launched a campaign to help students, especially those from outside Chandigarh, lead a healthy life. According to Doctor Puja Tiwari of the School of Public Health, PGI, they have covered three city colleges so far. Classes are also being held for outstation students.
Senior research fellow Tejinder Kaur said students were divided into two groups for purposes of research, the control group and the experimental group. Students of the control group are given books with information on how to live healthy while students in the experimental group are made to do yoga and meditation. The study will be conducted for one year.
According to doctors, students were initially hesitant about being part of the study but are now quite enthusiastic. With the cooperation they are receiving, doctors expect fairly accurate results at the end of the year.
