Under the watchword of “Prevention Begins with Awareness,” Hadassah Panama sponsored a “Hadassah Health Night” to promote health consciousness in the Panamanian community.

Over 250 men and women of all ages experienced an “express check-up,” received medical information from Hadassah Medical Center and local physicians, and were treated to healthy snacks. The express check-up, provided by local sponsors, included tests to measure blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), vision, flexibility, and sugar levels.

A video and graphic displays showcased Hadassah medical breakthroughs and the rising of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower, Hadassah’s new inpatient facility. Proceeds from the event were earmarked for the Tower project.

Hadassah Panama organizers report that Hadassah’s new International logo, featured throughout the event on posters, folders, and tote bags, as well as on doctors’ coats, was highly praised by all.
