Teacher of the year 2018

Thomas Abel

02.04.2019 - Thomas Abel has been selected as «Teacher of 2018» in the three University MPH program for his course «Grundlagen der Gesundheitswissenschaft und Sozialepidemiologie».

Thomas’s comment: “I feel honored however, I think this reward should go to the whole teaching team and the students who were ready to so strongly engage in the theories and evidence we addressed. This 3-days course has a focus on Equity and Health: it stresses a comprehensive understanding of health and its determinants, with the aim to promote just and fair opportunities for health and well-being for all populations. This appears ever more important today, at a time when those principles of Public Health are increasingly at stake.”

Each year the program directors honor teachers responsible for the modules evaluated as outstanding by the students.
