My first encounter with obesity and metabolism started during my PhD in metabolic and psychological changes in patients undergoing bariatric surgery.

After 5 years into my research and clinical work in this field I realized the great burden of stigma and the misconception in this field, but most of all the absence of advocacy of people living with obesity.

This inspired me to start our own patient association in the Netherlands: the NVOO. To help our community to voice their needs, to grow a safe community and get supported in every aspect!
