On 9th Sep. 2014, the “Youth Red Cross Society” of Dhenkanal Mahila Mahavidyalaya organized a seminar on awareness on HIV/AIDS in the auditorium at 11:00 AM. The seminar meeting was presided over by the Honourable Principal Dr. (Mrs.) Arpita Sabat. Miss Shamita Satapathy, Counsellor, ICTC was invited as the Chief Guest /Chief Speaker for the said event.
The ice breaking session of the seminar was the inaugural address by the Principal after a warm welcome speech by Dr. (Mrs.) Yogamaya Panda. Then the Chief Speaker presented her seminar before the staffs and students on AIDS awareness which was very informative and noteworthy. During this session of about an hour, many wrong ideas or notions about AIDS housed in the minds of the gathering must have vanished. This will definitely help them to have a positive idea and approach for the HIV/AIDS affected people that will have better impacts on the society.
Other staff members of the college, Dr. R. C. Malla, Miss Leena Gantayat and Dr. Dipika Kar have also shared their valuable views in this forum. Finally, the winners of the essay competition held previously on 26th Aug. 2014, were given prizes and the session ended with the vote of thanks by Dr. Deepak Kumar Sahu.
