Mind the gap!

Building bridges to better health for all young people

6 – 8 September 2017 – University of Leuven – Belgium

We have the pleasure to inviting you to the 19th Congress of the European Union for School and University Health and Medicine, which will be held in Leuven, Belgium, from September 6 to September 8, 2017.

The organization of this Congress will be a joint venture between the Flemish Association of Youth Health Care and the University of Leuven.

The EUSUHM Congresses have the aim of bringing together professionals providing population-based health care for children and young people (preschool, school and student settings).

§  How can we bridge the gap of health inequalities and guarantee equal access to care for all children and young people, irrespective of their diverse social and cultural backgrounds?

§  How can we organize and maintain continuous preventive health care from birth to adolescence and young adulthood in the entire European Region?

§  How can we make the most of new and promising scientific and professional developments to achieve more effective Youth Health Care in the future?


These questions will form the basis of the 19th EUSUHM Congress. Your ideas, research findings and professional experience will help us to address these challenges.


The abstract submission for EUSUHM 2017 is now open!


Yours sincerely,


Dr. Moniek De Keyser                                                       Prof. Karel Hoppenbrouwers
