Sunday, May 5th, 2019

Bareen International Hospital is featured in a double-page spread of a major English newspaper on the launch of our anti-obesity campaign #TakeTheStairs Challenge.  

In the article, Dr. El Zaqui Ladha, Consultant - Bariatric and General Surgery, tackles the alarming growth of obesity cases due to sedentary lifestyle.  He also talks about Bareen's anti-obesity campaign, which launched following the release of figures that highlight the impact of lack of exercise and unhealthy nutritional choices on the waistlines of the nation.

Attached is a print copy of the interview of Dr. Ladha, published in the arts and lifestyle section of The National newspaper - one of the major English newspapers in UAE. #TakeTheStairs Challenge is a social media-driven campaign designed to encourage people young and old to swap the lifts for the stairs, in a bid to boost exercise levels across the region.  The 30-day challenge will see people across the UAE forego using the lifts to reach their workplaces or homes and pledge to use the stairs instead.  Bareen staff, guests, and the community in whole are also encouraged to post images of their climb alongside the #TakeTheStairs hashtag.
