Annette Robyns

Position: Patient Partner

Annette has been involved in basic education in Belgium for over 25 years; she even worked for the Cabinet of the Ministry of Health. In her early years, she participated in the well-being of mothers by helping them in various ways and thus acquired a fairly developed social sense. Annette was particularly involved in education and health, although she also looked at other areas such as preparation for free movement in Europe, particularly in relation to poverty, transport, agriculture , etc. She has personal experience as a family member and caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s disease, which led her to question the lack of peer support programs in geriatric care. Annette is very interested in finding strategies to support caregivers.
