On The October 1, 2019

To mark the start of the academic year, the Université de Lyon has teamed up with Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes , the Assurance maladie and the Crous, to once again launch its information campaign for students, providing them with a better understanding of the health care system, and to underline the importance of taking care of yourself, even when you are still young.

A campaign to raise awareness and to provide information

The Université de Lyon has launched an information campaign for students in order to improve their understanding of the health care system, and to promote the importance of health care. Once more, this information campaign will run throughout October in locations near the University’s campuses and throughout the cities of Lyon and Saint-Étienne, along with the digital health portal, which can be accessed via the Université de Lyon’s website. This campaign includes all the basic health care concepts, including the prevention and health care systems available on the Lyon/Saint-Étienne site: taking care of your health is no longer complicated!
