I am the data manager and research assistant of the BENEFIT project:
Cardiologists, neurologists, general practitioners, academics, entrepreneurs, and patients have joined forces. Our mission is to make healthy living fun. Rather than telling people how to behave, we make healthy lifestyle choices appealing: the carrot is mightier than the stick. We envisage a national ecosystem that combines evidence-based lifestyle interventions focused on the individual, with an innovative environmental system that incorporates rewarding everyday lifestyle and adherence behaviors. The ecosystem integrates care and non-care settings, connects public and private lifestyle partners, is financially sustainable, and fueled by continuous scientific evaluation. We all BENEFIT!
At the Leiden University, I got my master’s degree in Clinical Neuropsychology. During my education here, my interest in scientific research grew stronger. I enjoy supporting others in their tasks and working with numbers and data, which is why I believe I am in the right place within the BENEFIT project, namely as a data manager and research assistant.
