Saturday, November 14, 2015

On the occasion of World Diabetes Day, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital conducted a walkathon to present a united stand against diabetes inside the hospital premises on November 14, 2015. The walk was followed by a complimentary diabetes screening test.

Special Sugar screening offers were provided to individuals along with consultation services at low costs where people got the blood sugar tested. A team of doctors also provided information on how to spot early signs of diabetes.

Sharing his experience, Vivek Malhotra, a participant said, “Being a diabetes patient, I realize the importance of early detection and management. Regular exercise keeps me going and my diabetes under control. This walk was a great event to raise awareness about diabetes.”

The walkathon was a huge success as many patients and families participated. The participants praised the initiative as it was extremely informative.
