Partner Session 02: Tyroleans are Healthier. But Why?

-
Hayek-Saal
Partner / Working Group
german language

Out of all of Austria’s federal provinces, Tyroleans are the healthiest Austrians. They live the longest and demand the least from their regional health insurance company. Nonetheless, they suffer under intensive stress. The cause-effect relationship has however not yet been scientifically explored. Are there any scientific explanations for this? If so, can we derive any courses of action from them for the other federal states and for Austria?

Immediately after the session, the SVA, in cooperation with the TGKK, invites all participants of their partner session to a reception in the Otto-Molden-Foyer.
