Dubai, UAE: Al Bustan Centre & Residence, partners with NMC Hospital to implement ‘Responsible Awareness Programme’ to raise health and safety concerns among its employees and management.

In collaboration with NMC Hospital, a successful event was concluded for the topic concerning Allergies and its varied effects and symptoms.  The Orator of the day was Dr. Ala Isam, a General Practitioner of NMC Hospital who shared essential information about Allergies in the UAE, such as preventions and treatments that one can take during when such diseases occur.

Up to one fifth of UAE’s population may have allergies, a study found that a 10th of the world’s 400 million nasal allergy sufferers live in the Middle East. Dust mite and cockroach allergies are the most prevalent forms in the UAE. Pollution, construction and climate are contributing factors, while sandstorms can aggravate nasal allergies and asthma.

The audience comprised of employees from each department including the Management, raised a variety of questions including food and heat allergies. The event was completed with a Thanksgiving to the NMC doctor and team.
