Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) and its unit Hero DMC Heart Institute (HDHI) joined hands with BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar, to spread health awareness among public through health-related messages.

Hero DMC Heart Institute had already initiated this campaign and registered over 20,000 people in which a health tip alert was sent to through SMS.

BCM School authorities gave a warm welcome to doctors of the DMCH and HDHI and were very enthusiastic in participating in the health awareness campaign.

School principal Paramjit Kaur said, “We will make all efforts in registering all staff and parents of our students so that they can also receive the health alert tips via SMS. Technology especially cell phones are now part of life and it is the best means to spread health awareness.”

HDHI secretary management Prem Kumar Gupta said, “Spreading health awareness is one of the best ways to fight disease and DMCH and HDHI had organised several health awareness initiatives to spread the message among people of Punjab.”

Cardiologist Bishav Mohan gave lecture on hypertension and diabetes in the school auditorium on Saturday. The awareness campaign was organised to educate people on the importance of diet and lifestyle in maintaining a healthy and disease free lifestyle.
