Guest Lecture on ‘Road Safety’
Road traffic accident is an important worldwide public health problem. What needs to be stressed is that it is preventable.
With the surge of construction work in all corners of the city the traffic congestion is at its peak. This resulted in approximately 1000 road traffic accidents in Nagpur in 2021.
The most vulnerable population is probably the youth of the country. Hence the Alumni association thought it apt to conduct an awareness drive for Road safety amongst the undergraduate students of NKPSIMS & RC and LMH.
The speakers were invited from an NGO named Janakrosh who have been toiling and doing selfless service to humanity by creating awareness about the consequences of such horrific moments of life when we can lose our near and dear ones. Shri Ashok Karandikar, Shri Prakash Khandekar and Shri Ramesh Sahare from the NGO presented eye opening videos and presented the statistics of accidents in India. The undergraduate batch of 2020 attended the lecture.
Dr. SushrutFulare, co-ordinator of the program, Dr. ShilpaHajare, Secretary Alumni association and Dr. MohanaMajumdar, Director General administration worked under the guidanceof Dean NKPSIMS & RC and LMH, Dr. KajalMitra,to make this a successful event.
