Women’s healthcare to be highlighted at upcoming Abu Dhabi Medical Congress and Exhibition

With a growing epidemic of non-communicable diseases, cancers, and lifestyle diseases among women in the Middle East, periodic health assessments and screenings are important tools to identify and minimise potential health risks. Experts highlight that these assessments are especially important for women above the age of 40 because at this age, chronic diseases and cancers are most prevalent.

Dr. Fayza Naser, Specialist Physician, Family Medicine, Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, Abu Dhabi, UAE, will be presenting a talk on �Healthcare for women over 40′ as one of the important topics featured at the Family Medicine Conference at this year’s Abu Dhabi Medical Congress and Exhibition, which will be held from 27th-29th October 2013 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

Dr. Naser highlights that as adults, biological factors related to gender can influence health, well-being outcomes, and treatment choices. Women’s health is about all the issues that affect women, encompassing all functions related to their mental and physical wellness throughout their whole lives.
