RAK Diabetes Centre launches free screening as part of ‘beat diabetes’ campaign which aims at a healthier UAE

Ras Al Khaimah: More than 30,000 UAE residents will be screened this year by the RAK Diabetes Centre in line with the World Health Organisation’s 2016 theme ‘Beat Diabetes’.

The RAK Diabetes Centre announced yesterday (Tuesday) the launch of a massive complimentary screening programme open to all associations and companies in Dubai and in the northern emirates.

“The fact that WHO has chosen diabetes as its theme for this year should give an idea of the high prevalence of the disease,” said Dr Raza Seddiqi, CEO of Arabian Healthcare Group, the parent company for RAK Diabetes Centre.
