The activity was graced by Mr Kamal D Shah, Co-Founder & Director of Guest Services, NephroPlus & Mr Sukaran Singh Saluja, Vice President, Operations NephroPlus.
More than 100 patients and their family members with a similar set of problems gathered together under one roof to interact with each other; discuss their problems and most importantly – have fun.
