Marlies Allewijn opens the Mid Term Review Meeting in Utrecht

The Mid Term Review meeting of EUTRAIN started on January 8th in Utrecht. As EUTRAIN is a translational project it’s main goal is to ultimately have an impact on children with inflammatory diseases. To put also the meeting in this context the meeting was opened by Marlies Allewijn. Marlies Allewijn is a gifted writer and journalist. Especially for EUTRAIN she has parts of her novel “SchEef” translated. This semi-autobiographic book is an inspiring and funny book about a teenage girl with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. All participants were touched by her reading and asked about the full english translation of her book. EUTRAIN hopes that SchEef will be translated, first in english, and afterwards maybe in other languages. It is a book that deserves a larger audience.
