VISION OF ESPHM 2020+1

“From my point of view the ESPHM 2020+1 should enable the European Pic Practitioners to congregate after a year where further education was difficult to be hold. To exchange opinions and ideas concerning pig medicine and health. And to relax with like-minded people in a beautiful atmosphere in Switzerland. That’s where everyone of us can contribute to with an open mind.”
