Science at the service of man
The Bavarian Province has awarded six prizes to students from Regensburg University
For several years now, the Bavarian Province of Fatebenefratelli has been awarding prizes for selected theses from the Faculty of Social and Applied Health Sciences of Regensburg University dealing in an exemplary manner with issues relating to care for people with physical and mental disabilities, rehabilitation, care for the elderly, social care in hospitals, care for the homeless and the Christian vision of man and ethical issues.
This year 6 students received their awards, for the first time by videoconference, in the presence of about 50 people.
Representing the Order was Brother Thomas Väth who referred to the scientific work of the winners, pointing out that the social professions were being called upon today, more than ever before, because of the corona virus pandemic. Confronted by the present crisis it is more necessary than ever to develop new ways of assisting people in difficulties due to the current restrictions, guaranteeing them regular social contacts that are "essential to everyone's life".
