Occupational Health holds annual Cardiovascular Campaign
March 31st 2017, Santiago, Dominican Republic.- Given that cardiovascular diseases are one of the leading worldwide causes of disability and premature death, the ESTRELLA group’s Occupational Health department organizes an annual detection campaign every March with the aim of preventing complications among its associates.
Between March 15th – 31st, occupational health representatives in all of Grupo ESTRELLA’s locations carried out full physical examinations, including HDL and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and glycemic tests, as well as taking blood pressure readings.
The campaign also catered to spouses, children and other dependents of Acero Estrella, Ingeniería Estrella, Laminados Estrella and Cemento PANAM members. The beneficiaries were also given advice about the importance of adopting healthy lifestyle habits as a way of preventing cardiovascular diseases and counteracting the effects of the risk factors.
