out of curiosity

‘I’d like to know more about the health of Surinamese people in Amsterdam. And I’d also like to know more about my own blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Of course, I could always ask my general practitioner about this. But I don’t ever seem to get around to it. And because I’m not having any problems, I actually don’t feel I can ask for this. But still, you never know. It’s always good to know. By taking part in HELIUS, I’m helping both the Surinamese in Amsterdam and myself by gaining more knowledge about my own health. So, two birds with one stone.’
