The World Heart Day Celebrations of 2012 saw BHB along with Apollo Hospitals enter into a long-term partnership with the National Cadet Corps (NCC). The cadets took the pledge in a ceremony at the NCC Auditorium. The event was graced by the presence of Dr. Prathap C Reddy and the Director General of NCC.
The aim of this collaboration was to not only to make the cadets aware of the BHB mission bit also to encourage them to spread the message of heart health amongst the youth of the society. BHB educated and trained the cadets by providing first aid skills, especially in cardiac emergencies. 600 NCC cadets were given basic life support training in October 2013.
