I am Jessica Langenhoff, Human Movement Scientist and biomedical information specialist. Diagnosed chromodiverse as an adult. Mom to a teenage son. My aim is to make biomedical information accessible to as many people as possible. Especially scientific biomedical information to people living with diagnoses. In this way, I try to build a bridge between science and everyday living. Also the reverse can be true: giving scientists and healthcare professionals input for their efforts to help people with diagnoses. Both by retrieval and summarizing of scientific evidence and by voicing what lives within the community of chromodiverse people.
I started XXs2info (access to info) in 2020. I saw an opportunity to combine communication and information services in one. After two years, I stopped as XXs2info suffered failure to thrive. I look back without regrets: at least I gave it a try and I learned so much from it. Besides my current job, I am still open to help people with these services:
Information retrieval services
So far, most Dutch medical information specialists only assist medical professionals and scientists in the retrieval of medical scientifical literature. However, her collegues in other countries, especially Great Brittain, also assist by selecting, critically appraising and summarizing the literature. This is a great added value as healthcare professionals then can use more of their time to direct patient care. So far, this service was not available in The Netherlands. Now, with XXs2info, it is.
XXs2info also offers communication services: writing texts for websites, patient information materials (paper or computer based), grant applications etcetera.
Editing Dutch texts: accessible and correct Dutch
Translating medical texts from English to Dutch
Although XXs2info mainly aims at clients in Zuid Holland (Leiden area, The Netherlands), working from a distance is also possible. The internet allows for several effective ways of communication. So feel welcome to connect. See the contact information page.
