In the Health Fair the team set up six medical check-up stalls for the students. With the aid of various instruments and machines, students got a thorough measure of their bodily parameters like, weight, height, BMI, blood count, blood pressure etc. This was followed by individual counselling sessions where each student was provided with an in-depth analysis of the status of their health and recommendations for improving it.

Citing many case studies and personal experiences of their patients they highlighted the impact of nutrition, light, air, temperature, exercise, sleep and substance abuse on health. Their presentations were illuminating, humorous, captivating and beneficial.

The students of Psychology Majors entertained the guests with a colourful display of medley of songs and dances. It reflected the vibrancy and beauty of the Indian culture.

Conclusively, the Wellness Camp went a long way in aiding the students to take concrete steps towards improving their health. The articulate and amiable faculty and students of Loma Linda University, Los Angeles, California, US, created a positive and lasting impact on Jaihindites.
