Visiting TISS was a Bliss

Dr. S. Parasuraman, Director of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) received Dr. A.R.K. Pillai and Dr. Narayan B. Iyer from IDF on 12th Feb. at the TISS Campus, Deonar, Mumbai.

IDF team apprised the Director on the ongoing activities of the Foundation.

IDF team also discussed on the possibility of launching of a nationwide month-long TB Awareness programme starting from 24th Feb. to 24th March. TB is a killer and we can only stop TB by creating massive awareness. 24th March is the World TB Day and let's involve more citizens to participate in the global programme, the team discussed.

Congratulating the work of IDF, Dr. Parasuraman said IDF team will be invited to address the students on various social topics, starting with TB.

Dr. Pillai thanked TISS Director Dr. Parasuraman and also congratulated him and his team for churning out a good number of social workers for this country.
