Mall of the Emirates, a leading lifestyle destination, furthered its commitment to supporting community health and welfare by screening more than 450 women for cardiovascular diseases at Mall of the Emirates. Done in partnership with the Ministry of Health and City Centre Clinic, the heart health testing over the weekend was the launch of Majid Al Futtaim’s regional month-long ‘Feel the Beat’ campaign.
Every weekend until June 12th, medical specialists from the Ministry of Health and City Centre Clinic will visit all Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls across the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Lebanon and Oman, administering a series of preventative tests for all females, to raise awareness for the risks of heart disease.
Checks included blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index (BMI) to determine if the participating women were at risk for heart disease.
With the objective to empower women to take control of their heart health through early detection and preventative measures, ‘Feel the Beat’ is part of Majid Al Futtaim’s wider programme of health and sustainability initiatives taking place throughout the year ensuring health, happiness and creating great moments for everyone, everyday.
The next testing will be at City Centre Deira on May 15-16 from 11 am – 8 pm.
Participating malls throughout the campaign in the UAE are: Mall of the Emirates; City Centre Mirdif; City Centre Deira; City Centre Ajman; City Centre Fujairah; My City Centre, Nasseriya and City Centre Sharjah. Shoppers can also participate in screening locations at City Centre Bahrain; City Centre Muscat and City Centre Qurum in Oman, City Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi in Egypt, and City Centre Beirut in Lebanon.
