Today we take a look behind the mask. The moment we recorded this podcast episode the 2nd wave of Corona is hitting The Netherlands. In the first wave, the Corona crisis was causing a lot of pressure and stress on our healthcare system and nurses & caretakers specifically. With a couple of IT Young Professionals, we are helping a great project called “Behind The Mask”. It is a joint effort of UMC Utrecht, TU Delft and Erasmus MC.

What the episode covers

The project aims to help nurses maintain mental and physical health by providing an online platform where they can share experiences and stories and help each other by giving tips, support and sharing articles.

As we are helping them with a team of Young Professionals. We are providing them with technical expertise and guidance to get this unique platform up and running.
