RAS AL KHAIMAH: In celebration of 3rd Emirati Women’s Day, RAK Hospital is organising an exclusive fun-filled fitness event marking the important occasion. The empowering event aims to provide the necessary education and guidance on important health issues. Celebrating the spirit of Emirati women, the event will provide them hands-on tools to manage their health and fitness regimen.

Free nutrition counselling, fitness and exercise tips, live discussion with medical experts, health stalls and talks, free eye screening, and complimentary health checks will be offered at the event to be held from 3pm-6pm on Monday at RAK Hospital. Ladies can have a fun day out with family while taking stock of their health. Moreover, there will be games, prizes, lucky draws and pampering spa sessions at the hospital’s very own luxurious health spa.

A special session by Dr Shweta Adatia, Specialist Neurologist at RAK Hospital to focus on effective stress management techniques that can help counter the negative effects of stress in life.

“Women are the backbone of the family and have a vital role to play in building societies and nation. Women wellness is a priority for us and that’s why we wanted to celebrate Emirati Women’s Day by empowering women with the right tools through which they will be able to nurture themselves in the most perfect way,” said Dr. Raza Siddiqui, Executive Director of RAK Hospital.

“Emirati women now occupy 66 per cent of government jobs, including 30 per cent of senior decision-making positions and 15 per cent of specialised academic posts. Women’s contribution to economic activity and the labour market has steadily increased and with so much work life pressure they should master the art and science of time management to focus on the health of their mind and body. This is just a small step in that direction to ensure they look after themselves so that we can have a strong nation.  Our intention is to increase the awareness about women’s health issues that usually remain the last in the priority list,” he added.
