HBCD Working Groups

To increase the connection between AMC, VU and VUmc within the Health Behaviors & Chronic Diseases program, in 2016 and 2017 HBCD collaboration grants were awarded to new promising initiatives that facilitate fruitful collaboration among HBCD researchers in order to optimize our scientific and societal impact. The collaboration grant resulted in the development of new working groups for joint scientific research coordinated by researchers from both AMC and VU/VUmc.
