Men-Tsee-Khang Celebrates World Health Day (WHD)

The staff was divided into groups to clean the surroundings of Men-Tsee-Khang, including the areas beyond its boundary. Keeping the theme in mind, Fruits and Juice were served as refreshments. Later that day, a program was hosted at Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Basketball ground with Dr. Tsetan Dorje, CMO of Delek Hospital, as the Chief Guest. He gave health advice in his speech and emphasized that excess consumption of foods high in fat, sugar and salt is detrimental to one’s health.

A basketball league between the Departments and the College of Men-Tsee-Khang, which started on 6th April, was concluded the day after on World Health Day. All the staff members were present to enjoy the final basketball matches of the boys’ and girls’ teams.

Mr. Thupten Tsering, the Director, said that the institute is not only celebrating this day to promote the interconnectedness between the planet and our health but to celebrate the bond between colleagues.
