Atlas Aerospace, the new aerospace arm of Atlas Group, in partnership with Beverly Hills Medical Centre in Abu Dhabi, marked World Health Day by offering free medical check-ups to its employees at Al Bateen Executive Airport.
The event, part of the company’s continuing commitment towards Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), included free tests like Body Mass Index (BMI), Sugar Level, Blood Pressure, Fibroscan (a test for the liver) and Sudoscan (a test for the nerves).
Now on its 70th year, World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on April 7, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as other related organisations. This year's theme, 'Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere' is also accompanied by the slogan, 'Health for All.' The WHO has also revealed that this year's celebrations are aimed at inspiring, motivating and guiding Universal Health Coverage (UHC) stakeholders to make commitments towards health care.
Professor Imad Victor Lahoud, managing director, Atlas Aerospace, said: “We are proud to join the whole world in celebration of World Health Day, which is focused towards promoting healthier living habits and practices that can increase life expectancy. CSR activities like this give us the opportunity to acknowledge the dedication and commitment of our employees.
“It is an honour for us to work closely with an industry leader like Atlas Aerospace to mark such an important occasion like World Health Day, which demonstrates both companies' understanding that health is important to all. Rest assured that we remain fully committed to providing world-class medical services and helping increase awareness on the importance of healthy living,” said Dr Mohammed Ayaydeh, CEO, Beverly Hills Medical Center. - TradeArabia News Service
