Pune – A training workshop on CPR was organized here by the Arogya Sahayya Samiti of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. Anesthesiologist Dr. Jyoti Kale guided the attendees on the importance of first aid in case of sudden cardiac arrest, i.e. giving ‘CPR’, the correct method of giving it, the qualities required for it.

The ISA expressed happiness that the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti activists took the initiative in participating in this activity.
