REBIRTH sets learning in motion

Children and adolescents are exercising less and less. To boost awareness of preventive action among parents and in schools, Hannover Medical School (MHH) is launching a two-year motion study called ‘REBIRTH active school’ in cooperation with the initiative ‘Bewegte, gesunde Schule Niedersachsen’(‘Active and healthy schools in Lower Saxony’). Today, in Hannover, the first examinations and training units took place at a participating primary school (Grundschule Groß-Buchholzer Kirchweg). After the Easter holiday, the study will be extended to include Kronsberg’s integrated comprehensive school and three other schools in the Lippe district.
