The Global eHealth Unit has organised a 3-month research internship experience for Michelle Bruggeling. Michelle arrives from Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where she is completing her final year of medical studies. She is currently working on a Cochrane review focused on interventions for recruiting smokers into cessation programs.
The Unit has also been collaborating with researchers in China, and earlier this year Michelle van Velthoven (PhD student) presented an overview of some of the Global eHealth Unit’s projects and her own work on mobile health. Researchers from Beijing’s Capital Institute of Paediatrics (Department of Integrated Early Childhood Development) then visited the Department of Primary Care & Public Health and presented a forum to the unit on the Institute's current work, the Chinese health system, and their plans for eHealth.
