In acknowledging the achievements of women from all walks of life and in celebration of International Women’s Day, Nutreema Advertising LLC held on March 11, 2017, Saturday, ‘The 15th Women’s Show’ at the Intercontinental Hotel Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women & Children, HealthPlus IVF Fertility Center, and Moorfields Eye Hospital Abu Dhabi. Around 500 women from different sectors in Abu Dhabi attended the event organized in cooperation with Health & Nutrition Magazine.
During her opening remarks, head organizer Rima Sayegh Janho said: “Every woman is beautiful and determined. Her essence is worth celebrating as she remains the rock of the earth over decades. Have a Happy Women’s and Mother’s Day to all of you.”
Health talks included a talk on Endometriosis in Women, as March also marks the World Endometriosis Month. Dr. Islam Sidky, Consultant Obstetrics & Gynecology, Minimal Access Surgeon at Danat Al Emarat Hospital in Abu Dhabi who gave the talk on endometriosis said, “there is a growing need to raise awareness on endometriosis in the region. Overall incidence rate is 10 – 15%, and 50% of women suffering from fertility problems are affected by endometriosis. Number of cases are increasing and women need to understand the symptoms and the importance of early detection, and having the right diagnosis early on. The diseases could be controlled and treated effectively if diagnosed early.”
