Sri Ramakrishna Hospital organised World No Tobacco Day. This year’s theme is “Commit to Quit”. This campaign encourages people to quit tobacco for a healthier life.
“So, we here at SRIOR have created a novel- first in the world digital awareness platform to create maximum commitment amongst the tech Savoy youth and adults.” said Dr P Guhan, Director Sri Ramakrishna Institute of Oncology and Research (SRIOR) Coimbatore.
“We at SRIOR have designed a Whatsapp Bot which is an AI (artificial intelligence) driven platform through which people can get the maximum awareness about not only Tobacco and related cancers but also covid 19 / it’s complications in English & Tamil. All this may seem complicated but the operation is pretty simple. All one needs to do is just save this number +916364578269 and through your whatsapp just send a hi message, the bot will start to communicate with you. Starting from the language selection then the disease selection the bot will take you through a series of awareness videos and facts. said Dr P Guhan, Director SRIOR.
This interactive BOT was launched to the public use in a private launch event on the world no Tobacco day at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital premises by the Managing Trustee D.Lakshminarayanaswamy presided by Dean Sukumaran, Dr P Guhan Director SRIOR, and staff members.
