EIT Health activities at Blodomloppet in Visby
September 16 you can meet EIT Health and Uppsala university students of medicine and pharmacy during Blodomloppet in Visby, Gotland – the street race encouraging physical activity and blood donation.
Blodomloppet (The circulatory system) is an annual race, filling the streets of swedish cities with thousands of joggers. The 2017 race in Visby, Gotland will take place Saturday, September 16. With main focus to encourage blood donation and physical activity, EIT Health, Uppsala University and Campus Gotland will take active part in the events surrounding the race.
Uppsala University students of medicine and pharmacy will interact with runners and audience to inform about issues related to physical activity, health, specific diseases and conditions and the importance of donating blood and plasma.
– This is an opportunity for our students to meet and discuss with citizens of all kinds, from athletes to lazy bums. This is really valuable since we know that health issues engage and that most people have questions on how to keep up a healthy life style, says Mia Colliander, education coordinator at Department of Medical Sciences, Uppsala University.
Representatives for EIT Health will also be present to inform about current and upcoming initiatives for a healthier future.
– A key feature in EIT Health's activities is to reach out with information, motivation and innovations aimed at stimulating improved public health, and Blodomloppet is an event in line with the goals of EIT Health. Both students and representatives of EIT Health Campus Uppsala University appreciate this opportunity to meet people of all ages, listen to their needs and challenges and hopefully get creative ideas that can help achieve the health goals, says Catharina Svensson, EIT Health Campus Coordinator at Uppsala University.
Earlier this year EIT Health and Uppsala University participated at the activities surrounding Blodomloppet in Uppsala. “A very inspiring experience”, Uppsala University healthcare students Felix and Emma stated while answering questions from the citizens of Uppsala during the Blodomloppet city race.
–We are receiving full financial and administrative support from EIT Health at European and Scandinavian level, which we appreciate very much, and we hope to expand and develop these activities during 2018, says Catharina Svensson.
EIT Health participation in the events surrounding Blodomloppet is part of the EIT Health CAMPUS Citizen Programme.
