Blood Pressure Screening Camps in India: Congratulations from World Hypertension League

Mr. Sagar Patil/USV India

Dear Mr. Patil:

Congratulations on your team's tremendous work in supporting the mission of the World Hypertension League in the detection and control of hypertension globally, through your blood pressure screening offered in conjunction with World Hypertension Day 2017. Since India is experiencing an increasing burden from NCDs as result of the escalating incidence of hypertension, your work is timely, necessary, and an important contribution to public health. At the WHL global headquarters, we have noticed your work and capabilities in promoting hypertension awareness in South Asia. Please accept our congratulations. Soon, you will receive separately an award recognizing and reflecting USV's outstanding contribution to WHD 2017.

Again, WHL salutes your team at USV for its noble work in the field of hypertension and preventive cardiology. Obviously, this activity also signifies the broad philosophy of USV in reducing the chronic disease burden in India by modifying the cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors in the community. Kudos!
