Residents' Meet on Prevention of Vector Borne Diseases

We had a residents' meet today at AA1C Market. Dr Chanda Etymologist and Hony Consultant of NKDA gave an authentic and detailed lecture using PowerPoint images to explain how mosquitoes create diseases and how to control mosquitoes. It was a very detailed exposition. I also added that (1) NKDA was running a health centre at Gate 4 of Eco Park where New Town residents can get themselves checked by the medical officer and also get free tests for blood sugar, blood pressure, oxygen saturation etc. (2) "Sattik" retail outlet in the same market building of AA1C was NKDA's retail outlet where organic, New Town grown (at Eco Park orchard, Swapna Bhor Kitchen Garden or Roof Top Garden) products and those supplied by govt entities like honey of Forest Department, rice of Agricultural Marketing Department etc were available (3) Residents could green and clean the area between their property line and the cycle track / footpath
