Eating healthy when treating obesity

Treating obesity better. That is the aim of Eric Hazebroek, professor by special appointment in Nutrition and Obesity Treatment. The 14th of November he gave his inaugural address at Wageningen University & Research. “Obesity is too often stigmatized: is your own fault. And that is wrong”, according to professor Hazebroek. “A large group of people who are trying to lose weight cannot succeed in doing so due to a variety of reasons. At Nutrition and Obesity Treatment we want to better understand why treatment is zo difficult; what can we do to be more successful in treating obesity?”

The position of Eric Hazebroek emerged from this collaboration. Hospital Rijnstate finances the chair group of prof. Hazebroek.
