Medical students motivated to walk the stairs instead of using the elevators

The event NO ELEVATORS DAY organized by the Association of Medical Students took place in the building of the Faculty of Medicine, UPJŠ on Wednesday, December 5, 2018. The main aim of the event was an effort to pay more attention to the physical movement as an important part of prevention of many diseases of affluence. Sixteen medical students symbolically closed elevators in the ten-floor building and motivated their colleagues, staff and faculty visitors to exchange the use of elevators for walking the stairs and do something for their health. The aim was to pay the people's attention to the importance of physical movement  for health and to demonstrate how simple it is to be active despite the busyness. The participants were able to verify their health by the several measurements and those who passed all  of the spots competed for prizes.
