Healthy Start PhD, Pediatric Resident

My name is Josephine Wagenaar, I am a pediatric resident at the Sophia Children’s Hospital and in 2023 I will start my PhD project on innovation of care pathways, focused on childbirth and hospital admissions during the neonatal period. Designing and implementing innovative solutions for healthcare problems requires collaboration between academic disciplines. Exchanging  knowledge, especially between young academics, is essential for my own PhD and probably for many projects. With the Healthy Start Young Board I hope to create and facilitate a community of multidisciplinary young academics, who work together to reach our common goal: improve child healthcare.
