Our Journey So Far

Hypertension screening camp at Malligai Poo nagar, an urban slum, Chennai

Fortis Malar Hospital organised a hypertension screening camp at Malligai Poo nagar as part of its community outreach program. An initial assessment by a doctor was followed by a measurement of the blood pressure. Height and weight to calculate the body mass index (BMI) was also measured. Out of 90 patients screened 13 patients were identified as hypertensive, 18 patients as obese and 27 patients overweight. Health education on prevention and treatment and follow up advice were given by Doctors.
