You are kindly invited to our annual GROW Science Day, which will take place on Thursday November 21nd, 2019 from 9:00-16:30hrs at the Van der Valk hotel, Nijverheidsweg 35, Maastricht.

Theme of the day is ‘Getting the patient's perspective'.
A highly interactive day including PhD debate, scientific presentations, a poster promenade and more is offered.

Be updated and take part in an open discussion about the patient-researcher relationship e.g. personalized medicine, quality of life and shared decision making; should patients have a say on treatment plans, fundamental research, fund allocation?

We are proud to confirm our inspirational keynote speaker; Bibian Mentel.
Bibian is a successful snowboarder in the Dutch-European and World scene, winning over 128 gold medals. She won 3 gold medals in the Paralympics. Since being diagnosed with cancer at 27, she was treated against cancer 10 times, now still revalidating from back tumor surgery and incomplete paraplegia. Meanwhile already practicing for 'Dancing with the Stars'.
Bibian will participate in the PhD debate and share her personal experiences on terms of top sport, her struggle with cancer, life after amputation and for all she will show you how to think in possibilities instead of limitations; It's all about mentality!

We look forward meeting you!
