Health Awareness Day Organized by Dubai Medical College

A ‘ Day’ was organized by the Dubai Medical College (DMC) to emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle and eating habits. The events began with a walkathon around the Arabian Centre in association with the Dubai Police, followed by athletic sports at the college grounds. A detailed screening and assessment of basic parameters such as BMI (Body Mass Index), cholesterol, blood pressure and sugar levels for the students was conducted by Dr Nazneen Hussain and Dr. Aisha Salim from the Department of Health – Al Khwaneej Primary Healthcare Centre. This was followed by a lecture on ‘Metabolic Syndrome’ by Dr. Mohammed Obaida.

The event also laid emphasis on a healthy diet. A workshop on planning a balanced diet was organized by Ms. Reema Sultan, clinical dietician from Al Qassimi hospital, Sharjah who offered valuable insights on making the right choices. The event saw participation from over 100 students.

Professor Mohammed Galal El Din Ahmed, Dean of DMC commented, “The present generation is exposed to increased risk factors caused by stress, overweight and a sedentary lifestyle. This initiative aims to highlight and implement a healthy lifestyle through easy choices such as walking, a healthy diet and sports. Such events play a key role in emphasizing the responsibilities of our students as future medical professionals.”

DMC, a part of the S.S. Lootah Group has been setting new standards for excellence in healthcare education. The college has implemented the EFQM excellence model, making it the first medical college in the UAE to do so. DMC has been awarded the ‘Dubai Quality Appreciation Program’ for its best practices in the medical curriculum delivery process.
