Hyderabad : To celebrate World Diabetes Day, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre, one of the largest Healthcare groups in Asia devoted to the treatment of diabetes and its complications, today organised a Walkathon on Necklace Road.
The Walkathon was flagged off by Dr. Sastry N. G., Director & Chief Diabetologist, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Sastry N. G. said, “This World Diabetes Day and always, it’s important to keep in mind that maintaining good health is the key to keeping diabetes at bay. Walking is a simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help people build stamina, burn excess calories and make their hearts healthier. The Walkathon being organised today is a small message from our end to this effect. Dr Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre is a pioneer in precision diabetes and we go to lengths to correctly diagnose and treat diabetes. In the case of children with diabetes, we are probably the only centre in India that focuses on correct diagnosis of the genetic mutations and treating the patients accordingly. We have also just launched an exclusive Centre on Monogenic Diabetes. Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre is present in 8 regions in Telangana”
About 60+ participants walked 3 kms. as part of the Walkathon.
