DIFC community offered complimentary health check-ups and consultations to detect and prevent a range of health issues
Dubai-UAE: 9 April 2017 – Dubai International Financial Centre, the leading international financial hub and destination for lifestyle, arts and culture, hosted around 200 members of its community at its inaugural DIFC Health Camp, in line with the UAE Year of Giving.
The DIFC Health Camp, devised to support the dynamic and hard-working community living and working at the Centre offered access to medical professionals and complimentary check-ups in general health, nutrition, ophthalmology, dentistry and skin care.
Raja Al Mazrouei, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications at DIFC Authority said: “DIFC is proud to support the UAE’s Year of Giving. We are committed to supporting our hard-working community and it was wonderful to see so many engage with this initiative. Not only do events like this make healthcare facilities more accessible to individuals based in the Centre during their busy day, but also raise awareness of the importance of early detection to help prevent health problems.”
The event was one of two Health Camps that the DIFC has on the agenda this year - the second is expected to take place in October 2017 and will primarily focus on Breast Cancer Awareness.
The DIFC Health Camp followed on from a successful Blood Donation Drive, hosted in partnership with the Dubai Blood Bank, which saw 236 participants volunteer to donate blood.
