Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) is to organise a community event at Souq Waqif at 9pm on Friday 3rd August, as part of the ‘Your Health First’ campaign. The campaign is an initiative of WCMC-Q in association with the Supreme Council of Health.

Souq Waqif was chosen to host the event, as the location is a popular destination, particularly during the holy month of Ramadan.

The event will also see the participation of Qatari comedian Mohammad Kamal, who will be presenting health information through a simple Question and Answer competition, giving the audience the opportunity to win a number of prizes, provided by Vodafone Qatar.  An Al Sadd football star will also participate in the event, giving the public, particularly the youth, tips on how to maintain a healthy body through healthy behaviour.

The event will also provide access to physicians from the faculty of WCMC-Q and the Supreme Council of Health, who will be available to answer questions. Dieticians will be on hand to assist participants in taking their first step towards healthy living.

The Ritz-Carlton Doha is also showing their support of ‘Your Health First’ by providing entertainment for the children on location, as part of ‘Garangao’.

By organising these various activities which include something of interest for every member of the Qatar community, WCMC-Q aims to spread health awareness and an understanding of how to prevent various diseases.
