Nguyen has enjoyed working on various projects, including one called “Work out, fill your fridge”. This is a digital app to help elderly people get the regular exercise they need and remember to take their medicine.
The app provides a daily reminder for people to take their medicine, whilst simultaneously counting their steps. By achieving their set goals in these areas, users of the app can gain points to be redeemed at supermarkets, restaurants or clinics.
The app provides a clear benefit to elderly people, but Nguyen is also interested in how it might be useful for insurance companies. By establishing a healthy customer community, and lowering the expenses related to clients’ health problems
“If you’re looking to learn and you see a course that suits your needs, just contact Train4Tomorrow or one of the delivery partners and ask for more information like I did. The first time I saw the opportunity, I thought I didn’t have the relevant experience to apply. I quickly learnt that the courses are designed for people with passion rather than experience, and I have got far more from the course than I could have imagined. Don’t be scared – go for it!”
