Dubai-UAE: 07 April, 2016 – Indian cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar visited Medeor Hospital, Dubai on World Health Day. He lent his support to the Hospital’s campaign, ‘Stay Super, Halt the Rise, Beat Diabetes’ to mark the Day.
“This year’s theme for World Health Day was Beat Diabetes – an illness brought about primarily due to poor lifestyle habits. On this Day we hope to encourage people to come in for regular health checkups, so Doctors can detect lifestyle diseases early thereby increasing our chances of successful treatments. Also, at these visits we can advise people on the pitfalls of habits such as a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle,” said Dr. Shajir Gaffar, CEO of VPS Healthcare for Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
