Mike Keesman, PhD
I am a postdoc and coordinator research on 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 is fueled by continuous scientific evaluation. We all BENEFIT!Back to the people page
