What's your story? How did you end up at Cara Care?
As a dietitian and expert in nutritional therapy for digestive disorders, I have always been curious about new development opportunities for this target group. So I came across Cara Care in search of new challenges, and was the first dietitian to help shape the digital product right from the start.
What have you learned about digestive health since working here?
In the last few years, a lot of research has been done on digestive health. It has been confirmed that there are many factors relevant for a successful therapy of digestive diseases (e.g. nutritional therapy, mental health). So I have learned more and more that a holistic and individualized approach is crucial for the affected person. If the therapy offer is also independent of location, those affected in the countryside or with acute complaints can experience a direct start of the therapy.
What do you like about your work at Cara Care?
The nice thing is: At Cara Care there are people behind the product who want to make a difference and bring digital healthcare forward. What I also appreciate very much is that the know-how of the nutrition team with knowledge from over 1000 hours of consultation and experience. This, in addition to evidence-based recommendations, is incorporated into the product.
Since the first day with Cara Care it has been dynamic, diversified, flexible, and fun. I find it exciting to be part of a modern digital healthcare company.
