The initiative was held in collaboration with Al Noor Hospital Airport Road Branch at FGP’s headquarters in Abu Dhabi.
FGP’s participation included tests directed by Cardiology Specialists provided by Al Noor Hospital. The specialists conducted ECG and Echocardiography on FGP’s employees to give them a better understanding on their current heart condition in addition to highlighting the importance of undertaking regular checkups. Based on the Echocardiogram results, Al Noor Hospital specialists provided FGP staff with consultancy and tips on how to maintain healthy lifestyle, free from cardiovascular diseases.
Commenting on FGP’s participation, Jasim Al Ali, CEO of FGP, said: “Following the initiatives and efforts during the World Heart Day on a global level, we embraced this opportunity to further promote a healthier lifestyle amongst our staff members. FGP was delighted to put its efforts together with Al Noor Hospital in reaching out to its employees aiming to help build a healthier society in the UAE.”
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Taha Ibrahim, Hospital Director, Al Noor Hospital Airport Road Branch says, “With today’s dynamic lifestyle and busy schedule, people tend to ignore issues related to the heart condition. It is crucial to understand the importance of prevention than cure. Diagnosis of heart diseases in the early stage could prevent severe heart conditions in future. It is our pleasure to organize this campaign in association with First Gulf Properties in order to commemorate the World Heart Day by providing proper diagnosis and consultation to its employees. This will help them to understand the disease at an initial stage and take preventive measures as advised. Heart disease conditions are increasing at an alarming rate these days, such campaigns will help diagnose people suffering from this disease and provide them with the best treatment options.”
It is worth mentioning that FGP has participated earlier this year in Earth Hour 2012, reflecting its commitment to the UAE environment. FGP distributed circulars to encourage tenants as well as the staff to attend and join millions around the world in switching off their lights, computer screens and all other electrical appliances in observation of this global day. These initiatives, and many others, emphasize FGP’s commitment towards taking part in important initiatives and causes.
