Doha Festival City (DHFC) has held an in-mall event dedicated to raising awareness on women's health, in collaboration with Qatar’s branch of The Teal Society organisation.
"As part of Doha Festival City’s commitment to Qatar’s community and to reiterate its active role in raising awareness of breast cancer, a global issue that affects all populations, the mall held a special afternoon brunch in partnership with The Teal Society and hosted by Jamie’s Italian," DHFC said in a press statement.
The event was dedicated to shedding light on women's health and the importance of preventive measures to fight against breast cancer. Members of the local media, as well as The Teal Society team and representatives from Doha Festival City, attended the event.
As part of Doha Festival City’s #FestivalCare and #QatarUnitesUs campaigns, the initiative discussed the importance of early detection and the crucial role that educating family and friends on women's health-related issues come into play in the global fight against the disease.
Robert Hall, DHFC's general manager, said: “At Doha Festival City, we urge the community to get more familiar with preventative measures, as we believe in the impact that a continued discussion can have on women’s lives."
The event was held on October 15 at Jamie’s Italian restaurant where NickiiJean Alexander from The Teal Society gave a special talk on women health issues, shedding light on gynaecological cancer specifically.
The Teal Society is a Los-Angeles-based non-profit organisation focusing on all things related to gynaecologial cancer and aiming at building a tightly-women community to support those who are suffering. Founded by Alexander, a Qatar-based behavioural therapist and entrepreneur, The Teal Society made its mark in the Middle East with its launch on March 8.
Jamie’s Italian is one of the restaurants by the world-famous British chef Jamie Oliver.
Doha Festival City's opening hours are from 10am to 10pm, Saturday to Wednesday, and from 10am to 11pm, Thursday and Friday.
