A phrase Caring for your health is all what we do promoted by Medicover is not just a meaningless plaque on the wall.
It has become ingrained in our day-to-day activities related to the business but not only. Our colleagues are great healthy lifestyle ambassadors at work and after work as well. Typically, their activities support good causes. Find out more about some of our sports initiatives:

‘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.
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.
