BeMSA Leuven

The Stigma Challenge

On the 27th of March 2018, BeMSA Leuven will discuss the themes of sex and sexuality on the Stigma Challenge, which will take place at the Hogeschoolplein in Leuven. You get the chance – free and in all discretion – to talk to the famous sexologists Wim Slabbinck (to see in ‘Blind getrouwd’) and Kaat Bollen (to hear on MNM and to read in Blik, Flair, Story en TvFamilie ). We also offer fun and interesting games about STDs, sexuality and everything to do with sex! Combine this with delicious snacks, tasty drinks and live music by Vince Seys 17u-18u (https://www.facebook.com/VINCESEYSmusic/) The Devilles 18u30-19u30 (https://www.facebook.com/thedevillesmusic/) NovaScotia 20u15-21u30 (https://m.facebook.com/Novascotiamusic/) We hope to see you all there! Do not forget to invite your friends too! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2106658939564804/

Origin and History

BeMSA Leuven first saw the light in 2009 as a workgroup within Medica, the student body for medical and biomedical students at the Catholic University of Leuven. In the coming year these students started the national structure.. Since 2017 we don’t have one workgroup responsible, but a committee consisting of 12 students. BeMSA Leuven stays closely joint with Medica.

Projects

SCOPH Hearth for Life Teddy Bear Hospital Day against Cancer Global Surgery Health Week Date your doctor SCORA The Stigma Chalenge SOS – Sexual Education at School. World Aids Day SCOPE & SCORE SCORP and it’s projects will be organised for the first time in 2017-2018. SCOME is not represented in BeMSA Leuven because education falls under the responsibility of Medica, the student body of medicine and biomedical students at the KU Leuven.
