Personal information

Meeke  Hoedjes

I'm currently employed as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Health Sciences of the VU University Amsterdam. My position is funded by the Alpe D’Huzes foundation.

In collaboration with Prof. dr. Jaap Seidell and Prof. dr. Ellen Kampman (Wageningen University), I'm conducting research on how to reach (sustained) health behaviour changes in (ex) cancer patients and in those with a genetic predisposition to develop cancer, with a special focus on long-term weight loss maintenance in overweight and obese cancer survivors after completion of initial treatment.
