Taking part in HELIUS

By taking part in HELIUS, you are helping to increase the knowledge on the causes of chronic and other diseases. This knowledge is urgently needed so that health care can be improved in the future for you, your children, and your grandchildren. What's more, you will receive a number of personal results from the examination.These results give information about important risk factors for cardiovascular disease, like your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar level. 


Participant meeting gut flora

We would like to tell you more about the results of the HELIUS study on gut flora. Participants have handed in stool in a jar once or several times, and some very useful studies have already been done on this. What does a healthy gut flora mean? Which factors influence a healthy gut flora? What differences are there between population groups?

The HELIUS researchers would like to present you some answers to these questions during an online meeting. You are cordially invited. There will also be time for questions and discussion. You do not need to sign up for this information meeting: you can just join digitally! We organize the meeting twice; once in Dutch and once in English. You can choose the day that suits you best.
