Health Talk: "H1N1 - Facts and Myths"

On 29th January, 2011 at 9am, by MHOLC's invitation Dr. Hamshima Onn from Tropicana Medical Centre delivered her talk on the said topic at our school.

The purpose was to allow children as well as parents to have the right knowledge about Influenza-A and H1N1, so as to avoid it and deal with it the right way.

In short, Influenza-A and H1N1 are still among us, however can be effectively remedied by medicine such as Tamiflu. Unless complications related to lung infection, asthma, heart problems, etc. occured, patients can recover within 24 hours.

At the end of the talk, Dr. Hamshima demonstrated the right ways in hands cleaning to children, and door gifts from TMC was distributed. All recon it was a good community service program.
