Born in 1987 in the Netherlands, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was merely 1 year old. Since then, I have been a user of the healthcare system for quite a while. I have been traveling a lot for work and study, where I got to know the differences in health care systems all over Europe.
As a diabetic patient you are confronted with many specialties in health care, and the emerging market of self-education is a field that currently is not addressed properly yet. That's why I am doing a research on the implementation of self-education courses via the internet for type 2 diabetic patients.
I am a computer engineer first, and at Karolinska medical university in Stockholm I learned to combine healthcare with technology. Now I am seeking for technology solutions to help patients be more aware of what is going on with their bodies. From diabetic patients, to asthmatic patients, solutions are to be developed for a lot of people out there.
