VISION OF ESPHM 2020+1

“I would say that I am quite frustrated with the cancellation of ESPHM 2020. As a practitioner and for all my team, the congress is source of inspiration. It is an important time to take knowledge and to exchange with european and american colleagues. It is an honour for me to participate to the organisation of the future events. I hope that the VPC will contribute to get the congress even more practical for practitioner with the possibility of putting things into practice upon their return to their practice.”
