QU hosts first-ever Annual ‘Recording Health” Competition

2021-04-08 00:00:00.0

Qatar University’s (QU) College of Health Sciences Student Association (CHSSA) hosted first unique ‘Recording Health’ university level competition through the Webex platform.
This competition started in August last year and concluded on April 3 with three wining contestants. The competition included the production of a short video for health field, to be chosen by the contestant. Perhaps one of the most prominent objectives of the competition was to develop the student’s creative abilities in the scientific field, to deliver difficult scientific contents to all segments of society in a simple and fun way. The competition took place in several stages, and it also included the provision of a content-making and editing workshop to support the participants.
The idea of the competition is derived from the way health workers help the community. As some medical topics are difficult and complex, it was necessary to simplify the content and put it in a simple and fun template, to suit all age groups in society.
The competition started with the participation of 15 contestants divided into eight groups, and they were asked to make two videos. The first shot includes 30 seconds of explanation, while the second shot is three minutes long, in which the scientific material is explained in detail but simplified at the same time.
The teaser video was shown on the League's Instagram account to get the audience to vote on the top 6 videos to qualify for the second stage. As for the original video, it was shown at the closing ceremony to the jury on the Webex platform, whose vote represents 80% of the total winning percentage, while the audience vote on the day of the event represents 20% of the winning percentage.
The competition witnessed a great competition among the participants and concluded with three videos for the first places, and the winners were honored. Certificates were presented to all the participants and the jury.
Jawaher Al-Emadi, President of College of Health Sciences Student Association (CHSSA) expressed her happiness with the completion of this competition, which was aimed at achieving a healthy and more effective university life by spreading awareness in innovative ways.
Asma Hassan, Vice President of CHSSA said, “The difficulty in understanding the scientific contents always lies in the method of its delivery to individuals. Therefore, it was necessary to devise new methods of communicating scientific materials to the general public in a simple way.”

The Association extended special thanks to the Dean of the College of Health Sciences, Dr. Hanan Abdel-Rahim for her continuous support to her students and her high confidence in them. Also, special thanks to the jury, represented by Dr. Nour Majbour, Assistant Dean, College of Pharmacy at Qatar University, Dr. Alaa Al-Owaisi, Head of the Human Nutrition Department at Qatar University. The biomedical science laboratory technologist at Qatar University, Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Jamal.
