Health Center Programs
Health Awareness provides community health education, preventative measures and programs to develop students’ awareness on how to lead a healthy lifestyle and how to avoid and deal with a variety of sicknesses. This helps improve students’ knowledge and build a strong background in Health Awareness.
Health Screening Programs
The Health Center in collaboration with various medical centers under the Department of Health Authority (DHA) organize free screenings and tests for various medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis, vision, and body mass index. Activities are held at UD Academic city new campus. Graduate students are encouraged to take part in such events.
The Health Center plays an important role alone with the Student Counseling Unit in community service by encouraging students to participate in services such as visiting homes for the elderly, orphanages, organizing blood donation and charity campaigns, raising awareness of environmental issues, working with people with disabilities and other activities that serve the community as a whole.
