World Hypertension Day

The celebration of World Hypertension Day in Paltan Slum was a comprehensive initiative designed to raise awareness about hypertension, its risk factors, prevention, and management. The program featured health education sessions, where HCL Tech volunteers provided free blood pressure checks to participants, allowing for early detection and promoting the importance of regular monitoring. These sessions offered valuable guidance on maintaining healthy blood pressure levels through practical advice on diet, exercise, and stress management. By providing accessible screenings and critical information, the program aimed to empower the community with the knowledge and tools needed to manage and prevent hypertension effectively. Following the educational activities, volunteers distributed Tulsi plants to the attendees as a symbolic gesture of health and well-being, reinforcing the program’s message of nurturing a healthy lifestyle. This thoughtful inclusion highlighted the cultural significance of Tulsi, known for its medicinal properties, and served as a lasting reminder of the event’s focus on promoting long-term health and wellness.

The event concluded with heartfelt gratitude expressed to all participants for their presence, contributions, and support in making the day a memorable success. Overall, the gathering served as a platform for seniors to socialize, share their experiences, and engage in enriching activities, positively impacting all attendees. Looking forward, we are eager to plan future events that continue to promote the well-being and happiness of our elderly community members. We will incorporate suggestions and feedback from participants to ensure these events remain inclusive and relevant.
