The National Archives Hosts a Health Campaign
“Together towards a Healthy Heart” in Collaboration with Sheikh Khalifa Medical City

The National Archives, in the context of its health events under the slogan “Your Safety is Our Concern”, hosted the health awareness campaign called “Together towards a Healthy Heart” in collaboration with Sheikh Khalifa Medical City.
Dr. Sherif Bakir, Consultant Cardiologist at SKMC, started the campaign with awareness guidelines about heart safety. The guidelines discussed the primary risk factors of heart disease. Dr. Bakir pointed out the importance of controlling blood cholesterol and the risk of stress. He talked in detail about the impact of obesity and diabetes on the heart and assured the possibility of prevention from such diseases. Dr. Bakir added an air of optimism when explaining to the attendants how to avoid heart and arteries diseases and their side effects by the early detection of the dangerous factors that cause them such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and dyslipidemia, which is the abnormal amount of lipids (e.g. cholesterol and/or fat) in the blood. He explained the significance of quitting smoking and urged regular physical activity to eliminate stress. Moreover, he mentioned the importance of healthy food in our life.
Consultant Cardiologist Dr. Sherif Bakir then listened to the attendants’ questions and concerns and provided them with proper medical advice. Later, the blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes levels of the employees were checked, in addition to measuring their height, weight, and body mass index (BMI). The dieticians provided information and answered the employees’ questions.
The National Archives’ management presented appreciation certificates to those in charge of health awareness events and thanked them for their services.
