IML medical checkup On Sunday the 1st of June 2014, IML joined the rest of Ugandans, well-wishers, and the corporate fraternity (including UTB, NBS, MTN, Turkish Airlines, Air Uganda, Redpepper) to help raise funds for the Mulago Heart Institute. IML provided free medical services in form of medical checkup, measuring blood pressure checks, blood sugar checks, body mass index, and holding one-to-one discussions and health advice.
This was during a walk organized by the Uganda Tourism Board that saw participants walk in the footsteps of the Uganda Martyrs by walking to and visiting the various burial sites of the Uganda Martyrs around Kampala. The sites visited include Busega, Old Kampala, Kisenyi, Pope John Paul, and Mapera Shrine.
According to Dr. Possy Mugyenyi of IML, in addition to their personal generosity, the participants were very appreciative of being made aware of their health status, educated about keeping healthy, and learning about the causes of Children heart problems.
