We are Loono
Young doctors, medical students, and other enthusiasts.
Together, we save lives through prevention.
We organize workshops and webinars in order to educate people about reproductive (#allgooddownthere) and mental health (#feelinggood), prevention of oncological diseases (#boobsandballs) and cardiovascular diseases (#yourheartforlife). We talk about the health and body clearly, we don't scare with statistics, and we inspire others to take care of themselves.

How Loono started
Our founder Kateřina Šédová (Vacková) was diagnosed with a malign ovarian cancer at the age of 22. Thanks to the fact she listened to the warning signals of her body, everything was detected in the early stage. As she has cured, Kateřina has decided to inspire other young people by her story.
And so Loono was founded - to help people realize that the right time to take care of their health is now.

Young doctors, medical students, and other enthusiasts who believe that patients should not only be treated, but also aware of how to prevent various conditions and diseases.
We have expanded our reach to five regions in the Czech Republic - Prague, Brno, Hradec Králové, Olomouc and Pilsen. You can join us too!
How do we finance our activities?
We regularly launch crowdfunding campaigns, accept donations from individual and corporate donors and we also sell our own merchandise.
Every paid workshop in a private company helps us to organize two workshops at schools, which in most cases cannot afford to pay for them.
