The Hindu’s Future India Club, in association with the city’s Andhra Hospitals, will organise an awareness programme on the occasion of World Heart Day, observed on September 29 every year. The theme of World Heart Day this year is ‘Use heart for every heart’.

World Heart Day is an opportunity for everyone to stop and consider how best to use their heart for humanity, nature and for oneself, the World Heart Federation observes. Beating cardiovascular disease (CVD) is something that matters to every beating heart.
