The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, Ogun State Chapter has advocated wellness for all members as well as the publics of the institute's chapter.

In its monthly business forum held in Abeokuta, the guest presenter, Dr Abosede Adegbite, speaking on the topic “Lifestyle Diseases of Choice”, said although her title seemed as if to choose from diseases, she noted “these are disease burden we suffer by choice, if we choose to live in a dirty environment, we have to choose to live with cholera”.

She highlighted top killer diseases as heart diseases, cancers and stroke, stressing that tobacco was about the worst heart-killer of the diseases.

Adegbite also noted that people who inhale the secondary smoke of smokers are prone to more risk than the smokers themselves, counseling that individuals should do at least 30 minute's exercise on daily basis.

The highpoint of the forum witnessed the introduction of Dr Adekunle Salu, a one-time Registrar of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations who inspired members present with the donation of copies of his new book entitled “The Eternal Dimensions of Public relations”.

The Chairman of the Chapter, Mr Tope Adaramola expressed, on behalf of all members, his deep appreciation to the PR guru for his esteemed presence at the event.
