First Face to Face Meeting of FA Europe Patient Support Group Representatives!
On the weekend of November 4-6 the FA Europe Network held its first meeting where everyone came together face to face for the first time!
This event was comprised of representatives from 10 European FA Patient Support Groups. These groups represented Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the UK.
We reflected on the ongoing projects the network set up and developed together, namely the creation of an FA Passport and the establishment of a Virtual Tumor Board. The meeting showcased the obstacles each individual country faces and the objectives they would like to reach. These challenges and objectives were shared among the representatives in order to collaborate and see what the next steps should be for FA Europe to take together. We welcomed Poland, a new addition to the network as well. Afterwards we enjoyed an informal gathering to cultivate the relations between the representative countries which helped strengthen our resolve to make sure that the collaboration between the countries stays strong as we face the challenges together!
