Who we are

Based on the vast belief that our present healthcare system is systematically underutilizing lifestyle based treatment for specific chronic diseases, TNO and the LUMC, together with many partners, have started the Netherlands Innovation Center for Lifestyle Medicine (Lifestyle4Health). Lifestyle4Health wants to drive a system change towards the application of lifestyle medicine as part of standard treatment of noncommunicable diseases. The mission of Lifestyle4Health is to apply lifestyle medicine to massively decrease the burden of common chronic conditions, like Type 2 Diabetes, Pulmonary and Cardiovascular diseases.

Best regards,
Pepijn van Empelen (TNO), Jessica Kiefte (LUMC), Niels Chavannes (LUMC), Frieda van der Jagt (Diabetes Fonds), Hanneke Molema en Marjan van Erk (Lifestyle4Health program office)
