09:00-09:20 Coffee corner (ENG + NL)

Besides not being able to go the Leiden University or the LUMC for work, you also miss daily contact with colleagues during this period. Human contact is an essential  part of  your daily work and keeping in touch with others benefits your work. Research has shown that social support is also important for reducing symptoms of stress. People with a strong social network have a higher life expectancy and a better immune sustem. During the Healthy University Week 2020 we organize Kaltura Coffee Breaks. A nice way to start a conversation with familiar and / or new colleagues while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. Do you like networking? Are you new at Leiden University or the LUMC? Or do you just want to chat? Use the Kaltura Coffee Breaks to expand your network or meet new people.

10:30-11:30 Workshop: Facts and myths about nutrition (ENG)

Nutrition is a hot topic. The media is full of it. What should you believe? Are carbohydrates and gluten bad? Are "superfoods" really that good? Because of contradictory reports in the media, people no longer see the forest for the trees and food is surrounded by all kinds of conscious rules and emotions that distract from the essentials. This workshop provides insight into what it takes for you to benefit from nutrition for your health. Facts are stated and myths debunked.
