RWTH Actively Engaged in Promoting Health – The RWTH Aachen Health Portal
Everyday, university life poses a multitude of challenges to both students and employees. These challenges are often linked to high amounts of stress. RWTH Aachen is deeply committed to becoming a health-promoting university. Our goal is to support all of our members in sustaining and promoting health and well-being.
The Health Portal is an information platform for all members of university who would like to know more about the topic of health at RWTH, would appreciate a private consultation or are looking for work-life balance involving exercise and relaxation.
The coordinator of Operational Health Management welcomes your suggestions and questions at any time.
Smoked long enough? The "smoke-free program" offers an opportunity for staff of RWTH Aachen University and University Hospital to participate in group training so that they may live smoke-free.
Task force for the promotion of health
In order to purposefully implement the promotion of health at university, or GF in German for short, an RWTH Aachen task force has been formed. This team is dedicated to:
- initiating measures to achieve and support a university workplace that is conducive to healthy work habits as well as a healthy lifestyle
- making the targets of GF at university widely known and strengthening them by means of public relations activities
- pooling and coordinating existing activities at RWTH Aachen in order to develop a master plan for GF, or the promotion of health at university
Every two years, the university is hosting a Health Day, each time with a special focus on a different topic. This year's Health Day will be taking place on May 10, 2017, and will be headlined by the motto: "Healthy in Every Sense – Seeing, Hearing, Feeling, Tasting, Smelling."
