HEALTH- "Role of school/School teachers in in Promoting Adolescent Health" on April 14, 2012

Dear Members,

On behalf of HEALTH Executive Committee, we would like to invite you for the HEALTH workshop to be held on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The details of the session are as follows:

Role of school/School teachers in in Promoting Adolescent Health

Schools performance is based on students and students’ performance is based on delivery of quality education. However this is heavily based on preparation of a teacher as “guide on the side”; which covers both the secular and extracurricular education, especially focusing on the life skills for young children
All this is possible if a teacher has the understanding of child’s health and social issues with special emphasis on adolescent health in specific.

By the end of the session participants will be able to:
Discuss adolescent health;
List issues of adolescent/school children
Identify the stakeholders in addressing the issues amongst the school children
Identify strategies to overcome the issues
Prepare an action plan on adolescent health to be implement at their respective schools
