I have been participating in the BAPS Charities Health Fair since last 4 years. I feel that this is a valuable service to the community which is especially prone to cardiovascular disease. Past BAPS Charities Health Fairs have resulted in early detection of heart related issues for many participants.

The BAPS Charities Health Fair was very much effective because many participating doctors could create the health awareness to prevent many critical conditions.
