Our research team

PriusHealth is an initiative from Swedish medical universities providing daily thought-provoking questions to inspire you to improve your health.

It is available globally through our home page both as an open website and a guided program.

It has been developed since 2014 by our team at the University of Gothenburg, Lund University and Skåne university hospital in Sweden, coming out of years of research in close collaboration with patients with type 2 diabetes.

Since 2017, the tool has expanded to include all people who want to prevent and treat lifestyle diseases.
