The Dar-Ul-Shifa Hospital and UCW observed “Nutrition Expo 2024”


The Dar-Ul-Shifa Hospital and UCW observed “Nutrition Expo 2024” on Tuesday, May 07, 2024.

The purpose of this event was to spread awareness among the students and faculty about the importance of good Nutrition. People nowadays, especially the young generation, face a lot of health problems mostly because of a weak knowledge of a healthy diet. The craze about having a fit and slim body has led the young generation toward a state of weak physical health.

The organizer of the event, Dr. Naseem Rafiq, Principal UCW found it important to enlighten the students about a healthy diet plan to keep them not only healthy but also fit in all respects.

Various stalls in this regard were arranged including food stalls (most of them home made), stalls of natural processed foods, Arts and craft stalls and stalls of medical consultants.

Prof. Dr. Zahir Shah, Dean Faculty of Social Sciences honored the occasion as Chief Guest. After the inauguration the guests visited the stalls and appreciated the efforts of the participants. The guests and visitors pressed on the need for such events for a healthy generation.
