Diabetes is a silent killer. It involves the entire body organ. It increases heart disease by 3-4 times. So, to create awareness regarding this deadly disease, we, Marwari Hospitals, in association with RSSDI ( Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India), are organizing this 1 Nation, 1 day, 1 million Test Campaign in our hospital premises," said Dr. Dinesh Agarwal.
He said RSSDI is the largest diabetic society in India adding that so, to create awareness about diabetics and to detect the disease in the masses, on 29th September, we are joining hands with RSSDI with a theme, 'One Nation, One Day, One Million'.
