The Importance of health in everyone’s life may be not similar & high. Today people in their daily busy life and hectic work schedule hardly spent any time to maintain their fitness levels and keep themselves healthy. In this stress full daily life people thrive to earn hard for their livelihood, neglecting the importance of one basic significant step that keeps them moving, a good health. This World Health Day, 7th April, 2015 Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road was not only determined to spread awareness but also to make the lives of common people healthy by starting a Health campaign on World Health Day with the Journalists first who keep moving & work hard to keep us updated with the world story. As the stress factor of meeting two ends is increasing and the life of journalists is really tough today, there is a great need for them also to take care of their health in order to be able to help others.
Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road a comprehensive tertiary healthcare set up launched a ‘Press Privilege Health Card’ on the occasion of World Health Day. An event was organised especially for the journalists from Mumbai- Navi Mumbai, Thane & Vasai & Virar. This special card will entitle holders to receive privileges on health checkups, diagnostic services, Speciality consultation and participation in health education forums.
On the inauguration of Press Privilege Health Card , Mr. Ravi Hirwani, Centre Head at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “We truly believe in spreading the message “prevention is better than cure” and since health is an integral element of our family happiness, being aware about many diseases such as Dengu,Swine flu and other life style diseases our core team of Health expert has been visiting various societies and making people aware to follow guidelines of staying healthy and how they can keep away from diseases by simple steps like hand hygiene,diet schedule,daily yoga etc. The diseases when occurred can take time to get cured and people have to go through a lot of pain & loss. So preventing it before it happens is always better. Thus we have started this campaign with a launch of Health Card so to spread this message of staying healthy & happy forever.
Journalists being the most important part of our society they provide us with daily information and enlighten us about the matters of the society that are of utmost importance. Arranging this day for them gives us an opportunity to keep them healthy in return to their good contribution to society & work, said Dr. Mohinish Bhatjiwale , a senior Neurosurgeon from Wockhardt Hospitals , Mira Road who conducted lecture on “Stress Management & Indian Media” in this event.
