Our Journey So Far

Diabetes and hypertension screening camp in Chennai

Fortis Malar Hospital organised a screening camp for diabetes and hypertension for a community of Fishermen at Nochikuppam slum in Chennai. Both these diseases are termed ‘silent killers’ as initially they don’t show any symptoms but affect a variety of organs. Therefore identification of these diseases in the early stages is very important. About 80 people benefitted from the camp.
