Late in 2014, the Humanitarians was approached by UCT Exercise Science and Sports Medicine (ESSM) MPhil student, Robert Evans for assistance in testing for his research project in association with Victoria Hospital, Cape Town. He humbly requested the assistance of the Biokinetic Humanitarian Project team to assist him with his research project. His project consisted of an intervention programme in which the BHP team were asked to assist with glucose measurements, blood pressure, height and weight, brief behavioural counseling regarding diet and exercise and perception tests.
The BHP gladly assisted Rob on September, 6th at the Tramway Football Club near Southfield Train Station in Cape Town. The event ran from 9am-4pm Saturday morning and volunteers also came out to assist and contribute to the success of the day.
“Thank you to the BHP team, without your help, the testing component of my research project would not have been possible.”
A follow-up to the first testing was conducted by Robert in which the BHP was requested to assist once again. The same measurements were performed as in the first session and the BHP team gladly assisted.
