Lisanne Geboers, The Netherlands

My name is Lisanne Geboers a 24-year old recent graduate of the MSc Health Food Innovation Management at Maastricht University Campus Venlo. During my master I did an internship at the Pharmacovigilance Centre Lareb where the aim of my research was how vigilance could contribute to the protection of consumers from adverse reaction of health-enhancing products. One solution brought up by other countries was ‘nutrivigilance: a scheme to improve consumer safety by rapidly identifying any possible adverse effects related to the consumption of food (supplements).
