To mark the occasion of World Kidney Day, Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) renal division, part of the Department of Medicine, is holding a week long awareness campaign at HMC’s hospitals and various shopping malls across Doha.
Speaking on the different promotional activities being organized by HMC as part of the World Kidney Day celebrations, Dr. Fadwa Al Ali, Director of Fahad Bin Jassim Kidney Centre said, “This is the fourth year we are conducting widespread awareness activities at shopping malls, which will take place at City Center (7th and 8th), Landmark (9th), Villagio (10th and 11th) between 4.30 pm and 8.30pm. The program at HMC will be Hamad General Hospital (8th), Women’s Hospital (8th and 9th), Al Amal (9th and10th) and Al Khor (10th and11th) hospitals between 8.30 am to 12.30pm”.
As part of the awareness campaign HMC is holding health check camps at shopping malls and within its hospitals, wherein people are encouraged to check their blood sugar, blood pressure and weight - all of which could have a possible impact on the proper function of the kidney.
“HMC is also distributing educational material on healthy living during the week long awareness campaign about renal issues in Qatar,” added Dr. Fadwa Al Ali..
