As pre-evaluation, we gathered that this topic intrests medical students and is relavant for them.
We have an objective to reach 150 medical students, so therefor we count them
After every event we send participants feedback forms, where we gather if the event was beneficial for them, did they like it and what would they like to be the next event.

* How many medical students attend the workshops. So far there are 95 people who have attended and by the end of the project we want to reach 150 students.
