There were two School awareness programs done in August the first one was conducted on 12th Aug ’17 at the G.V.English high school in Manorama Nagar Thane by Dr. Rima Choudhry , this program was attended by about 15 teachers and support staff members . The second program was conducted on 19th August by Dr. Mehboob at Ravi Kiran high school Vikhroli , attended by 75 students and approx 10 teachers . Both the doctors spoke about the myths related to Epilepsy and the first aid to be given . Both the schools are government aided schools English Medium schools in slum areas , with extremely committed teachers .Whilst the schools are English Medium , Marathi is the preferred language , hence both the doctors spoke in Marathi. The sessions were very interactive as the teachers had some students in the past who had seizures in school and they also asked a lot of questions. The teachers and students also promised to spread awareness among parents and other staff members who could not attend the session . For both the doctors this was first awareness program they did for Samman and they were very happy with the kind of response it generated.
