Lecture: “Does the health care industry ruin health?”

On November 16, 2020, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Sixtus Allert at UMCH – in a new edition of our ReachHigher lecture series. Since 2006 he has been Chief Physician of the Clinic for Plastic, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery of the Sana Klinikum Hameln-Pyrmont and since 2009 its Medical Director. He regularly gives lectures and publishes scientific articles on the use of new media in medicine as well as on health policy issues. The title of Dr. Allert’s ReachHigher lecture also includes a question: “Does the health care industry ruin health?”.

The healthcare sector has been on the rise for years. In the last 10 years it has grown by a whopping 4.1% in Germany. But to what extent does this affect people’s general health? Is it possible that this could even have negative consequences for us? In his lecture, Dr. Allert will investigate possible connections and subsequently answer questions from the UMCH students in a discussion round.

We are looking forward to it!
