Corresponding with the International Health Awareness Day celebration, the HCT-Al Ain Women’s campus (AAW) organized a Health Awareness Day on April 12
The Health Awareness activities addressed all AAW students, faculty and staff, with everyone given the opportunity to check their health through blood pressure test, sugar level test, cholesterol test, skin study, hair study, BMI, weight and fitness test.
In addition, there were also free trials and examples of healthy dairy products, medical products, healthy food and fresh handmade cosmetics. Furthermore, every participant had the chance to enjoy healthy and delicious fruit juices and smoothies “a la carte”.
AAW students organized a great initiative based on Detox Water distributed in beautiful jars, which they prepared themselves with the support of Miss Hinda Hussein, a General Studies faculty.
Mercedes Cebrain, AAW Sports Coordinator, said: “We made sure that this day was full of healthy choices and detox water was among them. It is actually any infused water recipe that helps flush the human system of toxins and improves the health. Some detox water recipes have beneficial ingredients which help the body in some ways (like boosting metabolism), but the main beneficial ingredient is water.”
At the end of the event, there was an awards ceremony for all the participants of the AAW Women’s Marathon organized by Miss Mercedes Cebrian.
