At the fore front of activities for the world stroke day was a series of free medical testing activities that saw more than 1000 people get tested. The testing was done by the partners of this event including Stowelink Medical Division, Amref Health ,Mended Hearts, Winnies Pure Health, Diabetes Association Of Kenya among others who actively tested the over 1000 people. The testing continues to go on from 9 am to 3 pm in the afternoon.
At the testing the individuals would be tested for blood pressure, blood sugar BMI and body weight and then there would be advised appropriately by the medical practitioners who were doing this. Individuals who had been found to be at risk were referred to the Kenyatta University Health Unit where they would receive further treatments and as a result get prevent or mitigate the effects of what they were diagnosed with.
From the feedback we got from a sample population of the people who got tested, they really loved the experience and were glad that they knew of their conditions as they sited prevention is better that cure. We were also glad that people enjoyed the services and even referred more friends of theirs to come through for the medical testing thus achieving the days objectives.
