Dear Member,
On behalf of HEALTH Executive Committee, we would like to invite you for the HEALTH workshop to be held on Saturday, October 03, 2015. The details of the session are as follows:

Topic:                         Providing Basic First Aid at School

A basic and understanding of first aid can be instrumental for individuals to be able to provide emergency care in the event of an accident, possibly saving lives and minimizing injury. Since injury is the fifth leading cause of death and children at the age of primary school are liable for accidents and lack of knowledge and good judgment of their teachers may lead to dangerous consequences when emergencies occur. Training teachers how to deal with accidents is of obvious importance.
