AMBASSADORS

Become a key opinion leader to promote preventive medicine globally

In 2015, the AHA, ESC, EACPR and ACPM jointly published a policy statement that defined how stakeholders should come together and collaboratively support and create initiatives that would advance preventive medicine. Key stakeholders and their specific roles described in this policy statement are defined in the Table below. As a part of that policy statement, it was recommended that ambassadors from all stakeholders be identified to move preventive medicine initiatives forward

The ESPREVMED Ambassador Program embraces the recommendations of the AHA, ESC, EACPR and ACPM jointly published policy and promotes its use to help the Society fulfill its mission of advancing research, educating health care professionals, creating knowledge and serving society.

ESPREVMED ambassadors from countries around the world will be selected. The ESPREVMED Ambassadors will be called upon to support, promote, and facilitate preventive medicine initiatives within their given country.

If you are interested in becoming an ESPREVMED Ambassador, please contact the society.
