I am passionate about

As a healthcare Professional for me health ist very important. That's why I work for JnJ, where I generate and spread new therapeutical knowledge. I really enjoy being part of a big global team that develops new medications and makes them accessible for patients around the world. I also like to share scientific knowledge as a speaker. I believe a strong scientific base in combination with a positive and energizing attitude can deliver a lot of positive change.

Actions

Art JnJ I’ve implemented a “holistic patient view” as a medical concept for several medical education programs which became a key driver for the whole therapeutic area. For my PhD thesis I chose to work in a nursing home. In this very vulnerable population a lot of inadequate medication is given, so I implemented interprofessional medication reviews, which very often led to a direct and immediate benefit for the patient. This still changes the life’s of patients every day, as I continue with that as an advisor on a voluntarily basis.
