Inspirational program 2nd Annual Conference Lifestyle as Medicine

On Wednesday the 21st of November LUMC and TNO will organize the Second Annual Conference ‘Lifestyle as Medicine’ in CORPUS Congress Center, Oegstgeest. TNO and the LUMC, together with partners, have started the Netherlands Innovation Center for Lifestyle Medicine NILG. Our present healthcare system is not equipped for the challenges of today and the future. Therefore we want to drive a system change towards lifestyle interventions playing their part in the cure and care of noncommunicable diseases.
