Every two years, RWTH dedicates an entire day to the topic of health. This time, the Occupational Health Management Team, in collaboration with the Health Promotion Working Group and the kind support of the Techniker Krankenkasse health insurance provider, has created an entire virtual health week, running from May 3 to 7, 2021, in which RWTH employees can also participate from their home office.

Get an overview of the program, which includes workshops and talks, nutrition, exercise, and individual counseling services.
