Heart Education Week Explored

In 2019, DeBakey hosted the first ever live broadcast of an open-heart surgery in a high school in Qatar. Medical and nursing students from Weill Cornel Medical College, Qatar University Medical College, Calgary School for Nursing, and the College of North Atlantic shared the experience with our students at the school.

This year, due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, we simply asked our students the best ways in which they can prevent heart disease and the top things to do to maintain a healthy and happy heart.

A video was also created for this occasion as well as a social media campaign that was viewed on the big screen at break time.

“Often a healing takes place in ourselves as we pray for the healing of others.” – Michael E. DeBakey
