Andre Boorma works for T&L, a research organization in the Netherlands and last year they started working on a project where the researchers are the subject. She introduces and describes the Nutritional Researchers Cohort, a ground breaking study using self-tracking to examine diet and nutrition. The group consists of 70 nutrition researchers who have created a voluntary cohort of self-trackers sharing data for science. In this video, they talk about the lessons and explore whether this approach of voluntary and participatory public health research could grow and inspire similar projects.
