Call for Volunteers to Help Limit Spread of COVID-19
Almost 200 healthcare students from Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) have responded to a call for volunteers and have expressed their readiness to engage in activities to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Latvia. Among them are 171 international students.
20 RSU students are currently actively participating in events organised by the state emergency medical services that are aimed at supporting the emergency services during this time. It is a common practice for medical students to volunteer in emergencies. It gives students additional opportunities to acquire practical skills.
Many RSU lecturers are also practising doctors and have been actively engaged in various events concerning the current global health crisis. RSU supports social responsibility for the benefit of social safety and health.
