   Next Saturday, July 28th, 2012, the MOH Media Information and Health Awareness Center, will make an interview with Dr. Mona Al-Awwad, a consultant physician of obstetrics and gynecology. This interview comes within the framework of the program dubbed “Your Health in Ramadan”, organized these days by the center for the eighth consecutive year, under the theme: “Make Ramadan Healthy and Balanced”.
Every day in Ramadan, the Center will be interviewing doctors specialized in various medical specialties, to receive people's questions and inquiries through the toll-free number: 8002494444, and social networks (Twitter) from 1 to 3 pm. It is basically intended to highlight the importance of a well-arranged dosing system, and provide medical tips and consultations during the holy month.
On the 6th of Ramadan, Wednesday, the Center interviewed Dr. Khaled Al-Medimaigh, a consultant physician of family medicine and diabetes. He received people's questions and inquiries revolving around diabetic coma, the proper dosing system of diabetes in Ramadan, and how to maintain a stable of blood sugar while fasting; and he provided apt answers for all such questions. He also gave an overview of family medicine as an all-encompassing specialty. It has to do with all health-related aspects for both individuals and communities, and covers all physical, mental, social, and preventive aspects.
It is worth noting that the Ministry of Health (MOH) has recently launched a comprehensive health-awareness campaign called: “Your Health in Ramadan”, under the theme: “Make Ramadan Healthy and Balanced”. Within the framework of this campaign, numerous health-awareness programs will be presented and aired on radio and TV channels, and inside health facilities, aside from the online campaign.
