MMH celebrates World Diabetes Day

Congratulations to the non-communicable diseases (NCD) team at MMH, who planned a great day to increase community awareness of diabetes and high blood pressure – a big walk from Chitakale to MMH, and a colourful event on the football ground were well covered by local media. The day focussed on ” Know your Numbers” with free testing for diabetes and hypertension, tallks and demonstrations of healthy eating and cooking.
