What is SAMDhealth?
Ever increasing numbers of children and teenagers suffer from allergies. At the same time, the demands at school, university and in professional life are increasing. Due to the fact that allergy disorders can have a detrimental effect on their academic performance, we have started the programme SAMDhealth in cooperation with the medical clinic Hochgebirgsklinik Davos (HGK).
Hochgebirgsklinik Davos (HGK)
The HGK is one of the few medical clinics in the Alpine region with comprehensive allergological expertise when it comes to the treatment of allergies in children, teenagers and adults and it covers the entire spectrum of allergies, pneumology, dermatology, paediatrics and psychosomatics.
The goal of the project is to offer pupils suffering from chronic diseases and medical disorders the optimum framework conditions in order to successfully achieve a good education.
Foundation aha! Swiss Allergy Centre
The foundation aha! is committed to support the more than three million people in Switzerland suffering from allergies or intolerances. The stated goal is to provide information and advice to help the people concerned achieve a better quality of life.
In 2016, SAMD was successfully certified by the foundation aha! Service Allergie Suisse and thus fulfills the requirements of the Swiss allergy label for students affected by allergies or intolerances. The Swiss allergy label is recommended by the aha! Swiss Allergy Centre.
