The major reason behind organising a career counselling session is to facilitate the students in choosing the correct field that is in tune with their skills and their job expectations. Therefore, it is observed that with the help of career counselling, majority of the target audience are able to choose the right career which helps them to grow and succeed in their respective careers. Two days career counselling session was conducted by Thiru Pasupuleti, Sudhakar B and entire team of Smartpur Vizag Hub Centre for the community.

World Alzheimer’s Day
World Alzheimer’s Day is celebrated annually on September 21 with the aim of raising awareness about the disease and reducing its social effects. 2 out of every 3 people globally believe there is little or no understanding of dementia in their countries, as per reports from Alzheimer’s Society, UK. The impact of World Alzheimer’s Day/Month is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem, which requires global action. This year Smartpur Nuh Spoke Centre Bainsi also participated in the World Alzheimer’s Day.
Our Healthpreneur Asif along with the Spoke coordinator Mustkeen educated the beneficiaries about the information related to Alzheimer such as- Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, leading to a continuous decline in memory and thinking skills. Most cases of Alzheimer’s occur in people age 65 and older. But education can lower your risk.
