According to Dr. Anbumani, the cardio thoracic department at the MMC would get a new building in its anniversary year. This department is one of the 5 such departments in the world, to be celebrating 50 years of service.

Prevention would be the focus of the national programme on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and stroke, to be launched this year. The message would be spread to schools, colleges and rural areas of the country.

Dr. Anbumani told about the importance of developing workplace health interventions taking into account the high rate of cardiac arrest and stroke among young IT professionals.
