On April 7, the whole world celebrates the day of health. This holiday was established in 1950 by the WHO to draw the attention of people all over the world to such necessary problems as:

  • promotion of a healthy lifestyle;
  • solving health problems in remote parts of the world;
  • prevention of the spread of dangerous diseases;
  • drawing attention to current problems and finding ways to solve them.

This year, students and teachers of KSMU together with residents of the city of Kursk and the Kursk region took part in the action “10,000 steps to life”, which was held in the park named after the 50th anniversary of the Komsomol (Boeva dacha).

This campaign was launched four years ago and was based on WHO recommendations: it is important to take 6 to 10 thousand steps a day to maintain normal physical activity.

The weather conditions did not prevent the participants of the action from making a fully feasible contribution to their own health and showing their civic position in promoting healthy lifestyle among the residents of our region.
