Sunandan Divatia School of Science, part of the SVKM’s Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), commemorated the occasion of World PT Day by organising a two-day free health camp. The camp was for its faculty, staff and students. The focus of the health camp was to raise awareness of the role of physiotherapy in osteoarthritis.

Dr. Ali Irani, Chairperson International Affairs at the Indian Association of Physiotherapists, and Honorary Professor, Physiotherapy at Sunandan Divatia School of Science, said:

"About 80 percent of us are suffering from some kind of joint pain and the main reasons for that are unhealthy food, sedentary lifestyles that lead to lethargy and obesity. In today’s fast paced life it is extremely important that we take some time out everyday and dedicate it to our own health and wellness. Simple activities like walking daily or swimming can prove to be beneficial for our joints in the long run. We need to invest now in our health rather than look for shortcuts later."
