2- Health Awareness Week
Health Awareness Week is designed to introduce first year
medical students to a variety of health services in the Emirate
of Sharjah and surrounding areas. Through participation in a range
of activities, students develop a greater awareness of health
services, communities, and practices. These experiences help
students to develop an understanding of the mechanisms and
issues involved in providing health services to various
populations as well as identifying areas in need of improvement
with particular focus on topics related to “World Health Day”.
At the conclusion of this week, students present on
a health-related topic taking into account challenges and issues
related to disadvantaged communities, poverty, environmental
issues and health
