Health improvement activities

The UT organizes various activities to help you gain a better overview of your lifestyle and improve it where necessary. An overview of these activities is provided below.

Dietician

Nowadays many people are keen on healthy living and eating. The dietitian is the expert on food, lifestyle and health and is best equipped to help you live a healthy life. 
Should you have any questions on food and healthy eating, or have any food-related complaints, visit the open hours of Marike ten Oever, dietitian. She has an open surgery every first Tuesday morning of the month. Every visitor has 20 minutes to ask questions or even have a screening performed. 
Such a screening could involve measuring your weight, BMI, fat percentage, girth, blood pressure and, if desired, blood sugar levels. Based on these measurement data, Marike ten Oever will provide you with a personalized advice and, should this be necessary, inform you about what standard follow-up track you should follow. 
In other words, the open hours are not meant to provide you with standard treatment from the dietitian, but to be an accessible way for you to gain an overview of your eating and living habits and what assistance a dietitian could provide.

Location:

Huisartsenpraktijk Campus UT
Campuslaan 99

So as to prevent waiting times and queues, we request that you register for the open hours (see below link).
For any questions you may have before you visit the open hours, contact Marike ten Oever by email: m.tenoever@home.nl
