Health, Nutrition, Exercise, Body and Mind


10 hours

To be of good health is one of your major societal obligations… Every unnecessary unhealthy condition of the youth and working-force is a burdensome millstone on the necks of the Social Security system, the Medical Benefits Scheme and the National Budget. Poor health undermines: family, productivity, punctuality, etc. Students will connect the dots between good health and personal and National Development. Students will be sensitized to the fact that the collective nation’s health will determine the cost of public and private health insurance and services.
