Bike Ride

‘Together Against Diabetes Type 2’ is a slogan of the annual Bike Ride organized by the Medicover Foundation and Damian Medical Centre. The aim of the program is to increase awareness amongst the general public of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and physical activity in combating one of the epidemics of the 21st century – Diabetes Type 2.
In the framework of the Ride, Medicover Volunteers cover around 1,000 kilometers in one week, passing through Poland’s so called Blue Towns, offering local communities the opportunity to determine their overall health condition by measuring blood pressure, checking blood cholesterol and glucose levels, and consulting with medical experts. All thanks to the experts from both Medicover Healthcare Services and Medicover Diagnostic Services divisions.

«‘The most difficult thing is to start’ - 4 years ago I started my adventure with the ‘Together Against Diabetes Type 2’’ Bike Ride. The Ride involved fighting one’s own weaknesses during training and the change of lifestyle – adding more exercise. But what is the most satisfying are common training sessions and days spent with great people who support each other during the actual tour. It is also about building awareness among people visiting the Blue Towns, and the entire promotional campaign associates with it, raising awareness in local communities we travel through about diabetes as a lifestyle-based disease.»

4th edition of the Bike Ride:

As a result of the four editions of the Bike Rides, we examined over 4,000 people. Disease was detected in five per cent of the examined population.

Triathlon Under the Microscope

The focus of the six-month project initiated by Małgorzata Łukasik, at that time Junior Diagnostic Laboratory Assistant at Synevo Poland, was health monitoring of 45 active triathletes-amateurs throughout their routine workout. 32 laboratory parameters were examined during 6 test series. As a result, the participants received test results with description, allowing precise control of the training, and tailored to the needs and abilities of the athlete. Moreover, collected test results were used for scientific purposes.

This initiative contributed to emphasizing the role of the laboratory in sport, and also pointed to research as a tool for reliable training control.
During the project, there was an accidentally discovered case of vast rhabdomyolysis. Immediate diagnosis and hospitalization made it possible to avoid life-threatening complications.
In addition, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria was detected in another triathlete. Thanks to the diagnosis, the triathlete could undertake immediate treatment.
The project proved the importance of the diagnosis of sportspeople and moreover – contributed to saving people’s life.
Małgosia’s initiative ‘Triathlon Under the Microscope’ was possible thanks to the immense engagement of dr n. med. Andrzej Marszałek, Medical Director at Synevo Poland and the commitment of many friendly and energetic people.

«A great project which helped me to relax my mind and control my inner machinery. Thank you for letting me be a part of the project, it was a sheer pleasure.»

«Great idea and organisation. The test results were surprising, giving food for thought. Thanks to them, I put more care of myself (especially when it comes to regeneration). Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part in this project.»

Employee Volunteering

‘No one can do everything, but everyone can do something’

Our growth and progress comes down to People. It takes a particular mindset to believe, plan and improve the world around us. Every day, we witness our colleagues’ great generosity by giving their time, talents, efforts, donations, professional knowledge, skills, creativity and compassion
Every year, Medicover employees participate in over 40 projects aimed at improving lives of less fortunate people. The number of volunteers exceeds 400 and the number of beneficiaries amounts to 3,000.

«I am volunteering out of an inner conviction because I want to make an impact for the benefit of the community I live in. I like the atmosphere at an employee volunteering event – being out of the office and doing manual work, chatting with colleagues and getting in touch with people outside your usual circles, learning about their lives.»
