PFA Director General Shoaib Khan Jadoon participated as chief guest and visited different stalls during the visit. On the occasion, Additional Secretary Nazia Jabeen and people from different walks of life were present.
He said that a team of PFA nutrition experts provided free of cost consultancy to visitors about the role of nutritional management to avert dengue fever and viral infections in this season. He said that the purpose of this dietary awareness camp was to guide the general public about the healthy diet that can avoid complications during these diseases.
