Community Service in SDN 01 Kalisoro
Workshop for students at SDN 01 Kalisoro was conducted with the theme prevention of germ and worm infection. The workshop covered on how to wash hands properly and correctly. SDN 01 Kalisoro was chosen as a target of social services event because of students’ limited knowledge on how to prevent worm infections and on how to wash hands properly and correctly. In addition, the school’s location is also quite remote from big cities. This event aims to increase students’ awareness on clean lifestyle as an effort to prevent intestinal parasitic infections and encourage them to do proper hand washing in daily life. The activity began with remarks from the Principal of SDN 01 Kalisoro by Mr. Mardjono, S.Pd and continued with speech from Dr.rer.physiol. Dr. Septelia Inawati Wanandi. After that, a pre-test was done to find out students’ knowledge about germs, worms and how to wash their hands properly. Next schedule was a presentation from Master’s Program Biomedical Science students. First presentation is about germs and the importance of proper hand washing and delivered by Dwi Pratami from the specialty of Biology. The material on the prevention of Helminthiasis was delivered by Tisha Lazuana from the specialty of Parasitology. In the practice session, all Biomedical Science students and lecturers involved directly to guide students of SDN 01 Kalisoro from grade 1 to grade 6 on how to wash hands properly and correctly. The event was closed with a post-test to find out students’ knowledge about germs, worms and how to wash hand properly, and lunch with teachers and students of SDN 01 Kalisoro. Conclusion: Through community service students can realize that as intellectuals, they have a moral burden to participate in building the nation. By simply sharing knowledge, students can contribute in improving public health.
