Chandigarh June 12, 2021:-The Postgraduate Department of Sociology at Mehr Chand Mahajan DAV College for Women, in collaboration with Chandigarh Commission for Protection of Child Rights (CCPCR), undertook a two-month long initiative titled 'Be an Immunity Ambassador'. Under this novel initiative, the student volunteers of the college conducted various awareness generation activities pertaining to immunity building in their locality under the guidance of the expert team of CCPCR. The volunteers successfully executed the awareness tasks in their native areas. The major areas being catered to under this programme were the role of quality sleep in well-being, the impact of screen exposure on health, the relevance of menstrual health and hygiene, yoga as a practice for mindfulness, effects of daily caffeine intake, positive thoughts as food for mind, emerging lifestyle disorders, the practice of intermittent fasting and impact of various nutritional deficiencies. The student volunteers showed remarkable zeal to pursue the individual awareness tasks in such challenging times and reached out to the community for promoting scientific temperament and a healthy lifestyle. The college submitted a report of 334 pages to the commission. The programme received huge appreciation and recognition from the administration.  CCPCR honoured college Principal Dr. Nisha Bhargava alongwith Dr Bhavna Sood, Head, PG Department of Sociology, Dr. Minakshi Rana, PG Department of Sociology and student volunteers for executing the programme to perfection. In a ceremony organised by CCPCR, Chief Conservator, U. T. Chandigarh Sh Debendera Dalai gave away certificates to the student volunteers. 

Dr. Nisha Bhargava lauded the efforts of the students towards the noble cause of spreading the word for better mental and physical well-being in such troubled times and added that considering the enthusiasm and positivity of the young immunity ambassadors for the community welfare, it can be very well estimated that the future of the nation is in safe hands.
