PhD researcher, Promovendus

Lisanne Mulderij, MSc, has a masters degree in Nutritional Epidemiology and in 2016 began a PhD program at the chair group Health and Society of Wageningen University & Research in Wageningen. Her research focuses on care-physical activity (care-PA) initiatives for people with a lower socioeconomic status: interventions in which professionals in the primary care sector (e.g., general practitioners, physiotherapists, and dieticians) collaborate with those in the PA sector (e.g., sports clubs or fitness centres) to encourage or maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve health among individuals who are at risk of a chronic disease, such as diabetes or obesity. The focus in this project is on 1) the evaluation of the impact of care-PA initiatives on participants, 2) the unravelling of the effective elements of care-PA initiatives for citizens with a low SES, 3) the investigation of the societal costs and benefits of care-PA initiatives for citizens with a low SES, and 4) the exploration of alternative ways to fund care-PA initiatives, prevention, and healthcare.
