Dr. Ahmad Syukri Jamaludin said the hospital also gave out 100 cheese tarts of heart decoration to the patients, visitors and staffs of KPJ BMSH in efforts to spread awareness of CVD.

    "Burn more calories by taking the stairs!! In fact, you'll burn 5 TIMES more calories than taking the lift.", said Dr. Ahmad Syukri Jamaludin. Other than free workout and heart health improvement, it can also save us a great amount of time and reduce energy consumption. It's sometimes much faster to take the stairs, especially during peak times when lifts take a long time to arrive on the floor of our location. It is also good for the environment because it lessens energy consumption; in conjunction of World Environmental Health Day celebration on September 26.
