Free Ramadan health camp in Ras Al Khaimah
As part of their healthy Ramadan initiative, RAK Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah is providing complimentary health screening during the Holy Month. The screening, which will run till Eid, includes lifestyle assessment to evaluate a patient’s medical and family history, diet, fitness, stress and sleep dependency along with providing free blood sugar, BMI and BP tests and health repost.
The screening also features health counselling which takes into account disease and stress management, ways to quit smoking, diet and exercise. Moreover, keeping with the spirit of giving, the hospital is also offering a discount of Dhs2,000 on delivery packages during the holy month to support mothers who are without insurance.
Open to all residents, the health screenings takes place within the hospital premises from Sunday to Thursday, 8pm-10pm.
“The month of Ramadan is the time for self-reflection and this includes assessing our health as well. This is particularly true for those who are fasting, since the sudden change in diet and sleep pattern requires especial discipline to avoid any kind of discomfort. Through this camp, we would like to help the people in the UAE understand their health issues better so that they take corrective measures that will provide long-term benefits. At the end of the day, the aim is to make lives easier and comfortable,” said Dr Raza Siddiqui of RAK Hospital.
