GlobalSkin hosted a European Patient Organizations Community meeting on September 15, 2018, in Paris bringing together patient leaders from Europe to discuss challenges and opportunities currently faced in this region. As 40% of IADPO's current Members are located in Europe, the objective of this meeting was to have an open discussion about where opportunities exist to improve advocacy for skin patients in Europe.
Members discussed ideas in which GlobalSkin could support European members including: advocacy when working with EU decision makers, unified awareness campaigns, approaches to working with partners and stakeholders, working with researchers and networking and information sharing opportunities between European Patient Organizations.
We look forward to working with our European Member Organizations to connect on a more regular basis to learn and share with one another. We invite all European patient organizations to connect with GlobalSkin as we continue to support our European Member Organizations.
