Dr. Ganjoo majorly emphasized that one should love one’s body and accept it the way it is, because it is beautiful. Students were told about Pubarche, Thelarche and Menarche. The session also focused on the adequate Nutritional requirement of an adolescent. Eating disorders like Bulimia Nervosa and Anorexia Nervosa were made clear to the students using different definitions and real life examples. At the end of the seminar, there was a small Q/A session in which students cleared their doubts regarding do’s and don’ts during menses, itching, rashes and medication for cramps. Overall, it was an enlightening experience for the students to talk freely about such issues and get their doubts clarified.
