Problem statement:

There has been an increasing burden on health because of the lifestyle of people. Diet is commonly associated with most diseases. It is important to educate medical students about various reasons behind improper diets and the elements of food security.

In addition, research shows that medical students are more likely to suffer from burnout  (Murphy, 2020). Therefore, this activity will also target stress management and burnout due to the high prevalence of these issues among medical students.

Target groups:

  • Healthcare Students


  • General population
  • Healthcare Students


  1. Share the opinions of the medical students through asking medical students a series of questions about health and posting their videos on SCOPH Instagram stories on April 7th 2022.
  2. Engage at least 50 students to promote awareness about access to healthy eating & stress management by participating in a 2-day interactive online sessions on 8th & 9th April 2022

Indicators of Success:

  1. Have at least 50 participants attending the event on both days
  2. Gain at least 200 views on the Instagram stories


On World health day, 7th April 2022, videos of people answering questions about health will also be posted on SCOPH Instagram stories. On April 8th 2022, an announcement of the event will be sent via email to QMSA members with information about the event and a google forms link to apply. 

Day 1 of the event will be held online on 8th April 2022, where trainers will be delivering sessions on the topics of diet and stress.
