Omron has announced it will be donating 100 of its state-of-the-art blood pressure monitors to the prestigious Annamalai University of Tamil Nadu, as part of efforts to contribute to the promotion of health consciousness and healthy lifestyles in India.
"Our commitment to India can best be seen through our emphasis on corporate social responsibility. We will be donating these blood pressure monitors to Annamalai University to support their clinical studies and extending help to students for their efficient learning. Omron hopes to make a significant contribution to the improvement of the health of people nationwide," says Mr. Masaki Kinoshita, Managing Director of Omron Healthcare India.
Omron does not consider the donation to be an act of charity, but rather an investment in India's bright future. As a socially responsible global corporation, the company considers all of its business activities as contributions to society. Omron hopes the donation will be highly effective in promoting the importance of health monitoring in the prevention of disease, not only to the wider public, but also to India's next generation of doctors and health professionals studying at one of India's most prestigious and influential universities.
As part of Omron's efforts to promote healthier lifestyles in India, over the last few years the company has also been sponsoring India's top three road races in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore and is also working hard to promote the importance of home health monitoring as an easy, inexpensive, and effective way to prevent disease and enhance health consciousness.
