Qatar Insurance Company (QIC), the leading insurer in the country, in collaboration with Syrian American Medical Center marked the World Diabetes Day by organising an awareness workshop for its staff.
The workshop included a presentation on the risk factors of diabetes, its symptoms and early signs, strategies for prevention and treatment of the disease. The session also featured free medical check-up for the QIC staff.
The attendees also benefited from the talk given by diabetes educators and therapeutic nutritionists, who spoke at length about following a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The awareness campaign aligns with QIC Group’s efforts towards realising the Qatar National Diabetes Strategy launched by the Supreme Council of Health last year. It also puts a spotlight on the group’s mission as a responsible employer in ensuring wellness of its staff.
Abdulla al Mulla, group chief administrative officer of QIC, stated, “Besides being a core part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, this initiative reiterates our commitment both as a corporate citizen and as a responsible employer. By raising awareness of this disease and embarking upon initiatives such as this, we would like to ensure well-being of all our employees, who we consider our most important asset.”
“Renewing our efforts under the theme ‘Preventing Diabetes Together’, we want to educate and raise awareness on aspects of the deadly disease, which many may not be aware of,” he added.
