“It is important that women all over Sri Lanka and the world put themselves and their health at the top of their to-do list. Awareness, regular screening and education definitely has a positive impact on saving lives.Early intervention and diagnosis are crucial in mitigating the effects or even prevent most diseases. Unfortunately, most women have trouble recognising warning signs for particular conditions until it is too late because they are not aware of them or are too busy taking care of and nurturing those around them. This is why we thought of dedicating the month of March to the women in our lives and gifting them with the opportunity to interact with and seek advice from various specialists at no cost,”Healthy Life Clinic Director and Head Consultant Diabetologist, Dr. Kayathri Periasamy explained.
