As­so­ci­a­tion of Pub­lic Health Tech­nol­ogy Stu­dents (APHETS) has held its ‘health week, ori­en­ta­tion and lec­ture­ship’ for the new stu­dents.

The event that lasted for four days fea­tured aware­ness cam­paign, di­a­betes, HIV/AIDS screen­ing, foot­ball matches and lec­ture.

In his re­mark, the Dean, School of Health Tech­nol­ogy (SOHT), Prof I. N. S. Dozie, urged stu­dents to lead by ex­am­ple by en­sur­ing a green en­vi­ron­ment free of dirt and lit­ter while pay­ing at­ten­tion to their aca­demic stud­ies.

In her speech, an As­so­ciate Dean, SOHT, Prof S. T Oparaocha, also ad­vised the stu­dents to cul­ti­vate good morals dur­ing their stay in the in­sti­tu­tion, say­ing univer­sity is meant to model stu­dents morally and aca­dem­i­cally.

The Head of Pub­lic Health Depart­ment, Pro­fes­sor A. N. Amadi, pre­sented a paper ti­tled ‘San­i­ta­tion and Hy­giene: A panacea for healthy liv­ing.’

In a paper, ‘Ca­reer in Pub­lic Health’, the Dean, School of Health Tech­nol­ogy, Prof C. O. Abanobi, told the new in­takes the prospects of pub­lic health prac­tice and the chal­lenges ahead.

He there­fore called on the stu­dents to re­main fo­cused and ded­i­cated so that they can ex­cel in their stud­ies.
