JM Gives Out Glucometers To Diabetics On 63rd Birthday

Former President John Dramani Mahama has given out 150 Glucometers with strips to diabetics at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on his 63rd birthday celebration.

On a visit with his family to the diabetes center on Monday, he handed over the equipment to the Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital Dr. Opoku Ware Ampomah, the Head of the Diabetes Centre Dr. Yacoba Atiase, and other senior directors.

Mr. Mahama was hopeful the Glucometers will go a long way in helping beneficiaries check and monitor their blood glucose levels at home.

Advising the patients present, he said, “As I donate these glucometers, I urge you to adopt healthy lifestyles, increase your physical activity, eat healthy diets and check your weight.”

Dr. Ampomah and Dr. Atiase expressed their immense gratitude for the gesture of the former president.

Additionally, the wife of the former President, Mrs. Lordina Dramani Mahama shared hot meals with the patients and staff of the Centre.
