University of Bremen Conferences in December

The Healthy City Bremen: Interprofessional, Digital, Sustainable (“Gesunde Stadt Bremen: Interprofessionell, digital, nachhaltig”) research cluster is holding a conference on December 1 titled “Healthy City.”

The goal of this conference is to bring together the varying perspectives of public health administrators and professionals, healthcare workers, city developers, and researchers from Bremen State for a discussion on the topic of a healthy city. The framework for the Healthy City Bremen research cluster comes from the healthy city guidelines created by the World Health Organization (WHO). The researchers in this cluster investigate a broad spectrum of topics. Among others, they are evaluating healthcare in community healthcare centers, are researching the effects of preventive home visits for the elderly, and are considering the use of digital technologies in outpatient care.

Irene Strebl, State Councillor for Environment, Climate, and Science, will open the conference with a welcome address. Dr. Nathalie Röbbel (head of Urban Health, Department for Social Determinants of Health, WHO) will give an international overview on the topic of urban health / healthy cities in her keynote address. Ronny Möckel (head of the Bremerhaven Health Department) and Dr. Jörn Moock (head of the Bremen Health Department) will provide additional impulses from the perspective of public healthcare service. A poster session will also provide information about current research related to the topic of healthy cities.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Konsul-Hackfeld-Haus in Bremen (Birkenstraße 34). Those who wish to attend the conference at short notice are asked to please contact Candy Grabowski, email: candy.grabowskiprotect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de
