T.E.E.N. Sine GaMUtan 2021

Efforts on increasing health awareness among adolescents are an important investment, not only for themselves, but also for the community they belong in. According to a Lancet Report in 2012 entitled “Adolescence: a foundation for future health,” foundations established during adolescence in terms of health and education will produce significant effects on social and economic development. Indeed, young people are viable shapers of economic progress, provided that they are healthy and trained properly.

The Mu Sigma Phi Sorority, through Teenage Health Education for an Empowered Nation Campaign (T.E.E.N.), proudly invites you to join T.E.E.N. Sine GaMUtan — an animated webinar tackling different health topics relevant to teenagers — to be held on August 26, 2021 (Thursday), from 10:00-11:30 AM.
