Gleneagles Global Hospitals organised a day-long programme at its premises on Sunday. The event celebrated the hospital's contribution in helping people fight obesity. Events from a fashion ramp walk to health quiz to classical dance performances were organised by their patients who underwent bariatric surgery or undertook a weight loss programme. Speaking on the occasion, Dr K Ravindranath, Chairman & Founder Gleneagles Global Hospitals said, "Obesity has become an epidemic, where the person gains excess weight and is unable to lose that weight through diet or any other measures. In these people, obesity is a health hazard, and can lead to health issues such as heart diseases, arthritis, hypertension etc.
