Infection protection

We still have to comply with strict infection control restrictions in the coming months. In order to be able to carry out physical education in a safe way, procedures have been created for various teaching activities. It is absolutely necessary that you familiarize with these regulations. While you may already be well acquainted with some of these regulation, others may be specific for the courses you are attending in the Spring.

Welcome to The Ethics of Testing Second Best Treatments in Developing Countries

Open guest lecture by Ezekiel J. Emanuel. The event starts with a reception at 2:45 PM. There will be light refreshments and a chance to network and mingle. The guest lecture starts at 3:30 PM. Registration before August 18.
