Health Camp for Police Personnel
Fortis Hospital on Arcot Road conducted a free health camp for police personnel and their families at the police residential quarters in T Nagar. More than 500 people were screened at the camp for random blood sugar tests, BP, ECG and echocardiogram. Police personnel and their families were also able to consult a cardiologist and a dietician. The Fortis medical team also investigated for hypertension, diabetes and gastritis at the camp. Dr Mohan Ranganathan, Fortis Hospital, Arcot Road said, “Long hours of work, irregular eating habits and stress are the causes of developing high blood pressure, diabetes and heart attack. We are planning to organise several camps at various police residential quarters in future.”
