The objective of this talk was to help to educate and create awareness among our parents regarding common illnesses such as Dengue, Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections and others especially now that monsoon season is coming and with the Covid-19 pandemic going on. Parents are concern about how they can keep their children safe and healthy. The talk was held in an intimate group size to allow parents more personal interaction time with the doctor.
