Wasl Cares for its Tenants with Free Health Check-ups

[Dubai, UAE, June 10, 2015] – Families in Dubai are able to benefit from free health check-ups this month thanks to a partnership between Wasl and Aster Medical Group. The leading property management organisation has teamed up with the renowned healthcare organisation to offer free medical tests and lifestyle advice for Wasl tenants and their families in two of the city’s prominent locations, with Wasl saying that the service forms a core part of its commitment to its tenants.

“This latest Wasl health drive is a key engagement initiative for our customers that shows our concern for them in all areas of their lives, not just in matters relating to their properties. The wellbeing of our tenants and their families is extremely important to us as we believe that a healthy customer is a happy customer,” said Zainab Mohamed, CEO Property Management, and Marketing, Wasl.

The first of Wasl’ and Aster Medical Group’s health camps took place at the club house in Wasl square on Friday, June 5 from 4-9pm, with 270 families from the company’s Wasl square development in Jumeirah and 23 families from its Wasl vita project invited to attend. The second will be hosted on Friday, June 12, also from 4-9pm, in the Wasl amber building in Karama. A total of 153 families will be entitled to avail the free service; 69 families from Wasl amber and 84 families from Wasl onyx also in Karama.

Tenants and their families attending the health check-up events have their heart rate and blood pressure checked, as well as their Body Mass Index determined through weight and height measurements. They also have their blood sugar levels assessed in view of diabetes being a significant problem in this part of the world. After analysing the readings, the attendees receive a free consultation from the Aster medical professionals about their lifestyles and how they could improve their health. Amongst the advice dispensed is information on how individuals could optimise their diet, shed extra pounds and take up safe levels of exercise.

“Medical check-up and lifestyle advice activities such as these are an integral component of our CSR programme that is committed to giving back to the community. We are very keen to tailor future health services for our tenants, so after carrying out each health assessment, we give out survey cards to gauge attendees’ feedback about the health camps. The gathered information will be used by Wasl to plan further professional health screening and advice for residents in the forthcoming years,” added Zainab.
