Announcement to all the ladies! Selected malls across Dubai and the UAE are offering free health screenings for women this September and October.
The free health checks are part of “Feel the Beat,” a heart health awareness campaign that is being conducted in all Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls. The campaign seeks to spread awareness about the early detection and prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Shopping Malls Offer Free Health Screenings for Women
The participating malls will feature allocated areas, where medical practitioners will conduct the free health screenings. For each visitor, they will measure and check:
- Blood pressure
- Blood sugar
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
By checking these indicators, the medical professionals will be able to determine if the person is at risk for heart disease. If so, a follow-up consultation will be recommended.
Schedule of Free Health Screenings
The location and schedule of the free health screenings are as follows:
- City Centre Deira – September 14 to 16 (12pm to 10pm)
- City Centre Me’aisem – September 18 to 20 (12pm to 10pm)

A “S.M.A.R.T.” Program
This is not the first time that Majid Al Futtaim carried out a health program. Specifically, the Majid Al Futtaim Charity Foundation launched “S.M.A.R.T.” (Start Making All the Right Turns), a program that focuses on the prevention of hypertension, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.
More than 10,000 women joined the “Feel the Beat” campaign last year. Aside from Dubai malls, this year’s campaign will also be held at Fujairah City Centre, Ajman City Centre, and Sharjah City Centre. Majid Al Futtaim malls in Bahrain and Oman will also hold the campaign.

“Feel the Beat” campaign is a great way to spread awareness about heart disease. For sure, a lot of women will take advantage of the free health screenings in malls. Meanwhile, here’s a list of top malls in Dubai and the UAE that you should definitely check out.
