Feel The Beat

Mall of the Emirates invites all ladies for a free heart check-up at the Central Galleria from the 28th to the 30th of September.

 
Location: Mall of The Emirates , Central Galleria 
Timings: 10:00am to 10:00pm

Mall of The Emirates launched its annual campaign Feel the Beat offering complimentary cardio-health screening for women in collaboration with the American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, and with the Emirates Cardiac Society with the aim  to spread awareness of cardiovascular disease, prevention and the importance of early detection. 

Cardiovascular disease is often perceived to mostly afflict men; however, Feel the Beat aims to help more women become aware of the risks to their heart health. According to a Nielsen study of women in the GCC, the top two health concerns were high-cholesterol levels and being overweight, both of which are risk factors for heart diseases. Despite heart diseases being the leading cause of deaths in the region, the perception of risk is low and warning signs are often ignored. 

Feel The Beat will host medical professionals from Dubai Health Authority and Zulekha Hospital who will administer complimentary cardio-health screening and conduct screening for women.  Visitors will be able to check their Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine if they are at risk of heart diseases and if they would require a follow-up consultation for further analysis.
