World Senior Citizen’s Day 2019: Patient Awareness Programme
Diabetes in India is spreading like an epidemic with over 70 million patients. Diabetes is also a major cause of hypertension, glaucoma, diabetic food, stroke among other acute diseases in humans.
The programme revolved around the causes of the disease especially amongst elderly people and the allied treatments for holistic well being of the affected persons.
Dr. Patro said “Diabetes is spreading like a wild fire globally and India is one of the worst affected countries. The lifestyle of the younger generation is acting as a catalyst to this epidemic like situation. The numbers are scary and we, as a society need to collectively work against minimizing the spread of this disease. We at CDAS have conducted this programme for the first time and will make this a regular initiative so that we can touch as many lives as possible through this activity to substantially reduce this disease in the country.”
Taking part in this program, senior citizen Vikram Shankar Mathur said, “The program addressed by Dr. Patro on World Senior Citizen’s Day was very impressive especially for a person like me who is suffering from diabetes. The information provided was very important for senior citizens to be followed regularly. I thank Dr. Patro for organizing such awareness program and urge to make more and more people aware.”
