Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Following the announcement of complimentary heart health checkups at Majid Al Futtaim’s shopping malls, City Centre Deira welcomed around 1,000 ladies, who got tested for early detection and preventative measures against cardiovascular diseases. Checks included blood pressure, blood sugar, body mass index (BMI) to determine if the women were at risk of heart disease.

The activity was aimed to raise awareness on the alarming number of cardiovascular diseases amongst women, and part of a regional health campaign called ‘Feel the Beat,’ initiated by Majid Al Futtaim - the leading shopping mall, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East and North Africa.

Every weekend until June 12, 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. The next testing will take place at City Centre Mirdif on May 22-23 from 11 am – 8pm.

‘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.

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.
