Dr.Mehta’s Hospitals,Chennai,India.Being a Pioneer hospital over 85 years of Quality healthcare in this region, we have social responsibility of creating health awareness among general public.On behalf of World Kidney Day we have series of events. It is crystal clear that that there is vast avenue for prevention of kidney diseases and “Prevention is the best form of cure”. “The best means to fight chronic kidney disease is prevention and bridge the knowledge gap: it is thus paramount to identify and to treat possible and preventable risk factors, but reversing the tide will require concerted efforts not just from healthcare providers, but also from the entire society” ,hence educating school children is of prime importance.
