Students with allergies are welcome and in good hands
Joint pioneering achievement
The SAMDhealth health programme, developed in close cooperation with the Hochgebirgsklinik Davon (HGK), has been successfully certified by Service Allergie Suisse. This makes SAMD the first school in Switzerland to be awarded the Allergy Seal of Quality and recommended by aha! Swiss Allergy Centre. The prerequisite for this was an intensive review and adjustment of operational processes in order to meet the strict requirements.
Embedded in a long-term study
Studies have long shown that therapeutic stays in a high mountain climate have a positive effect on health. Currently, these findings are also confirmed by a long-term study with over 1000 patients conducted at the HGK. The SAMD health programme is part of this study.
The best conditions for success
The aim of the joint programme is to offer young people with chronic diseases the best conditions for successful education and training. For this purpose, SAMD has adapted its infrastructure (hypoallergenic rooms) and the Code of Conduct (nut-free school). Furthermore, the teaching, cleaning and kitchen staff are all specially trained.
Healthy for graduation
In the classroom, SAMD shows consideration for the special needs of those affected and supports them with all affairs and concerns. Where necessary, specialised HGK paediatricians will even hold clinics at the school. Optimal coordination between the teaching and outpatient or rehabilitative measures leads to zero school absences, by and large, and the path to graduation is also without complication as far as possible.
Upon request, we can clarify where any financial support could be provided to attend the programme.
