The Initiatives of A. Menarini Diagnostics and Menarini Guatemala. A free check-up to fight diabetes.
In many European countries, including France, Spain,
Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Greece, under the
banner of A. Menarini Diagnostics, we make donations
in favour of foundations and associations involved in
treating diabetic patients, in addition to taking part in
nationwide events organised to foster the prevention of
Glucometers for measuring blood sugar levels together
with medical examinations are provided free of charge to
citizens who agree to evaluative screenings.
Menarini OTC has also taken a leading role in innovative
projects to promote health in the population, frequently
held in public areas and spaces.
For example “Pasos y Pedales” (Walking and Pedalling) was
an initiative promoted by the City Council of Guatemala City
and took place every Sunday throughout the year 2010 in
many of the most crowded streets of the city centre. On these
occasions Menarini gave
out free information on health issues and invited passers-by
to try out some physical exercise as an integral part of a
healthy lifestyle, offering them a free 20-minute “spinning”
session with the supervision of a professional trainer.
