World Congress on Public Health

EUPHA-PHMR section newsletter 2020


Dear colleagues,

I am happy to inform you about the latest EUPHA-PHMR section news and to share our activities during the World Congress on Public Health.

Best regards,
Nicole Rosenkötter
past president EUPHA-PHMR


New section president

This newsletter is one of my last official tasks, before I hand over the section presidency to our new section president. After six years my term as EUPHA-PHMR president comes to an end. I experienced real European cooperation and I appreciated all the activities that were linked to the position. Thanks for your trust, your support and your shared experience!

Petronille Bogaert will be our next EUPHA-PHMR president and I am looking forward to this new period. You can meet Petronille during the pre-conference, our Join the Network Meeting and a lot of workshops (see below).
