The Medical University of Warsaw has launched a GetMUWing campaign to promote healthy living among students, faculty and staff. The GetMUWing campaign is intended to inspire, motivate and support international students to begin or maintain a healthy lifestyle.
All international students are invited to participate in the GetMUWing campaign activities.
3 WAYS TO GetMUWing:
1. GetMUWing by taking “simple steps for caring about me”. To live healthy, one has to start with “me”. Activities organized in this category will focus on ways to prevent health problems. We have asked experts to address this topic.
2. GetMUWing by making “healthy eating - a good habit”. Activities organized in this category will focus on ways to help you develop a healthy diet. Specialist, dieticians and students will be giving advice on healthy, nutritious eating and its benefits during information sessions, workshops and events.
3. “GetMUWing and feel better!”. Physical activity can help both your mental and physical wellbeing. We want to showcase ways you can move more if you are sitting in front of a computer, training indoors or prefer the outdoors.

Take the Cooper test! The Cooper test is a test of physical fitness. It was designed by Kenneth H. Cooper in 1968 for US military use and is used to monitor the development of the athlete's aerobic endurance and to obtain an estimate of their VO2 max. SOURCE: https://www.brianmac.co.uk/gentest.htm. The point of the test is to run as far as possible within 12 minutes. To take the Cooper test come to the Skra Stadium, ul. Wawelska where we will be recording your results. There will be rewards from the Dean for three students with the best results.
