Medway Maritime Hospital - Benefits of healthy living

Medway Maritime Hospital has long been associated with healthy living campaigns. The benefits of these lifestyle choices for those who make them lie, above all, in lessening the mortality rate from coronary heart disease and many other problems. But much more needs to be done, especially in reducing the increasing number of people contracting diabetes, in diminishing the number suffering strokes, and in the early diagnosis of prostate and bowel cancer. The challenge of the growing problem of obesity, and in particular its effects on children and young people is also addressed.
