Societal Impact

In this subtheme, we aim to motivate influential medical doctors and researchers to reach out to society. This will create more awareness and spread reliable information on Prevention and Lifestyle among the general public. Furthermore, social media outreach will result in more visibility, both nationally and internationally, which may result in further collaborations.

Societal outreach already plays an important role in our theme. Influential researchers and caretakers from our theme, such as professors Hanno Pijl and Douwe Atsma, regularly appear on different media platforms, including tv programs, and write books and blog posts for LUMC’s website. We also have good contacts with general practitioners, particularly when it comes to referral care, as they participate in several of our large projects. However, we aim to intensify this in the coming years.
