7th ESSUS Conference
“Towards student health care in the next decade”

13 – 15 October 2022

On behalf of the ESSUS Network:
Organized by the Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Call for abstracts.

The 7th ESSUS conference will take place in-person, being hosted in Cluj-Napoca, after a two-year period in which the lifestyle and behaviours were affected by the anti-pandemic measures. On this occasion we invite you to share, your experience related to Covid-19 pandemic or the results of studies on lifestyle and behaviours in university students that you have carried out. More specifically, our interest will be on advanced and digital methods for investigating students’ health status or behaviours and interventions to maintain or improve students’ well-being.

Nowadays it is well known that in the curative medical practice, the orientation towards personalized, predictive, preventive, and participatory medicine gives better results than the previously practiced classic one. Conversely, students represent a young apparently healthy population, but exposed to the most new and diverse technologies, therefore such improvement in the case of preventive medicine for students is more complex and difficult.

This conference offers a great opportunity to join practitioners and challenge discussions on the future and most appropriate solutions to improve students’ well-being in the next years.
