The project “The Heart of a Teacher” was launched in the region.


As part of the Teacher’s Heart project, teachers at Kursk School No. 35 were examined and received recommendations from doctors at the Kursk Regional Multidisciplinary Clinical Hospital.

Teachers, taking the achievements and failures of their students to heart, often forget about their own health, so the significance of the “Heart of a Teacher” project can hardly be overestimated, said Natalya Parkhomenko, deputy head of the Kursk administration. According to Mikhail Lukashov, chief physician of the Kursk Regional Hospital, a healthy teacher is a healthy nation.

All teachers who took part in the action had their blood pressure measured, body mass index determined, ultrasound of the carotid arteries, thyroid gland, blood glucose test and a cardiogram. Doctors made an individual health card for each teacher, which lists the main results of the studies passed, gives recommendations on how to avoid the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.

Medical examination “with home delivery” is very convenient, the opinion of the deputy director of school No. 35, primary school teacher Polina Kudyukova is given on the website of the regional hospital of the Kursk region.
