Mangalore: “Education will provide new dimension to life of people which will reform their standard of living in the society” opined Sri U.T. Khader, Hon’ble Minister for Health & Family Welfare. He was delivering the convocation address on the ‘Graduation Ceremony & Annual Day’ of Nursing, Physiotherapy, Medical Laboratory Technology, Medical Imaging Technology students of City Group of Institutions held on 09.03.2014 at City Enclave Auditorium.


Graduation day is a memorable event in student’s life. It is time for jubilation and celebration.

The graduates should serve the alma mater as future ambassadors, he added. Later he presented the certificates to the graduates and congratulated them.
