A workshop on first aid was held at Dr. K.K. Surgical and Paediatric Centre, Selaiyur on January 12. The programme was held to create awareness among the whole society by conveying the message to teachers-the eye openers.

S.Kasi and K.Kavitha Lakshmi were the speakers of the day and held an interactive and lively session with the right tint of humour. R. Kannappan, the administrative officer of the hospital delivered a wonderful speech at the start, praising the role of teachers in shaping the future pillars of the country. The doctors explained what kind of first aid must be given to the victims of sunstrokes, choking, burns, drowning, electric shocks, and spinal cord injury.

Around 75 teachers from various schools in and around Tambaram attended the workshop. They had the satisfaction of having learnt so many new things and of having a hands-on training on how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). They felt very happy as they knew they would be able to save many lives. At the end, Dr. Kasi conducted a quiz programme to check how attentive the teachers had been. The programme ended with the sound of a great round of applause for the organizers. Everyone who was present at the workshop thanked the doctors for having provided them such a wonderful opportunity so that they could revive precious lives in crucial circumstances.
