Coimbatore: Sree Abirami Hospital and Coimbatore Rotary Heritage jointly organised a free heart checkup camp at the hospital.
Aimed at educating and creating awareness among the public, the hospital and Rotary inducted a project ‘Idhayam Kaappom’ to help the needy. At the camp, Rs.2,000 worth of tests were conducted free of cost.
