Stella Duwendag, Public Health
Several international experiences have helped me to understand the incredibly strong influence of health on people’s lives. This is why I chose to study Public Health. Within my studies, I have learned more about these determinants of health, from biological to social, cultural, political and economic factors. Due to this variety, global health can only be improved through the cooperation of people from all kinds of disciplines. I am convinced that there are lots of fantastic ideas around the world that have the potential to improve global health, but have not yet been realised. Therefore, I am grateful to be a part of the organising committee of the YLH Social Entrepreneurship Challenge on eHealth, which gives young people the opportunity to share their ideas with peers, receive support from experts and to actually turn them into reality.
