What is “Health”

“Fridays at the Moise” – Dr. Juraj Sepčić

“Fridays at the Moise” gatherings have continued on June 19th, 2020, with a lecture entitled “About Health”, and held by prof. dr. sc. Juraj Sepčić. The lecture is a part of a weekly event organized by the Centre for Lifelong Learning and the University of Rijeka.

“Health Is Silence of the Body”

Dr. Sepčić is professor emeritus at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Rijeka. His long career in working with patients and continuously studying medical science(s), enabled dr. Sepčić to introduce to us the concept of “health” through many aspects and circumstances. He began by asking – What is “health” and what does it mean to be “healthy”? Is it just the absence of disease, or does “being healthy” mean more than that? Those who visited last Friday’s lecture had the opportunity to hear about various approaches to health, as well as about the importance of an individual and a holistic approach to each person when it comes to enhancing their health.

Next Friday, on June 26th, 2020, the Moise Palace will host Tanja Blašković, an art pedagogue whose lecture entitled “From Garbage to Art” will consider the use of plastic bags as a medium for creating works of art and fashion accessories.

Thanks to Walter Salković for the photo coverage of our last Friday event and we hope to see as many interested citizens next Friday at the Moise as well.
