Course Description

Our health theme is rather broad and includes topics such as food, nutrition, eating lifestyles, table manners, stress and mental health, medicine and health care.

The health of its citizens is of great concern in every country around the globe, as expressed in this quote from US Aid:

"Nutrition is one of the critical drivers for economic growth and poverty reduction, making it a key component of promoting international stability and security, building human and economic capacity through improved learning and productivity, and contributing to a robust, capable workforce."

(Ernährung ist einer der entscheidenden Faktoren für Wirtschaftswachstum und Armutsbekämpfung, was sie zu einer Schlüsselkomponente für die Förderung der internationalen Stabilität und Sicherheit, den Aufbau menschlicher und wirtschaftlicher Kapazitäten durch verbesserte Bildung und Produktivität und einen Beitrag zu einer robusten und leistungsfähigen Erwerbsbevölkerung macht.)
