“If you receive an email from me at 6 in the morning, I will deliver some coffee with it.”
Dr Natalie Grams
What made you decide to work at ifok?
What I like about ifok is the shared vision, the idealism and the values. They are not just on the website because it all sounds so nice, but they are lived out every day in our work and in the way we interact with each other. Especially when it comes to the delicate topic of health, I have the impression that ifox, with their authentic empathy, are great partners for successful communication, both internally and externally – and that we can make a difference. In addition, I can reach many more people with my work at ifok than I used to in my doctor’s office. Health concerns us all – and often very intimately – and health education continues to be the name of the game for me.
How long have you been part of the ifok team and where were you before?
I have been an ifox since October 22. I’m actually a medical doctor, but I haven’t worked in a medical practice or clinic for a long time. Instead, I work in science communication on health topics. Most recently, I have worked in the public health sector and before that in the general public on topics such as homeopathy and education on vaccination.
What sets you apart at the office?
I don’t give up. Controversial points of view provide me with a challenge. I particularly like to approach delicate and complex (health) issues with a good team and to carefully address justified scepticism or individual concerns.
As a morning person, I can also promise: If you receive an email from me at 6 in the morning, I will deliver some coffee with it.
In which areas do you act in a particularly sustainable way?
I’m probably one of those people who prefer to cycle and take the train instead of driving for the sake of the climate, and who has a vegan diet without really talking about it. You got me, I did it after all.
