A message from Dr Harris Lygidakis, CEO of WONCA
Participating in an international conference is a humbling experience: you must leave your context’s prejudice shoes at the doorstep to absorb with fully opened eyes how colleagues assist their patients in their own context. Only then you will appreciate deeply the emotions, best practices, but also frustrations and concerns of your colleagues. And if a spark in your eyes is the result of this experience, I am sure you will come back at your own practice reinvigorated by sharing common values with other colleagues and a touch of hope. Experiencing this incredible opportunity can be provided through the bursary programme — and I would urge all of you to apply for it.
