EACPR Prevention & Health Policy Section Chairperson

Simona Giampaoli

Vision Statement l CV

“As candidate for chairing the section on Prevention and Health Policy, my proposals are to identify experts, such as cardiologists, epidemiologists, GPs, statisticians and researchers, and ask for their contributions on:

surveillance methods using routine data collection;

  • implementation of standardized methodology for validation and harmonization of morbidity and mortality indicators in order to assess the burden of coronary heart diseases in different European countries;
  • evaluation of cardiovascular diseases time trends and geographical distribution in order to plan, implement and assess appropriate preventive actions;
  • promotion of primary prevention at population level, highlighting the results obtained at national level by European countries in the field of healthy diet, physical activity and smoking cessation and proposing new concrete actions easily applicable within Europe;
  • development of strategies to draw the attention of policy makers and of all relevant governmental and non-governmental
  • organizations on the threatening health problems such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, obesity and smoking habit, proposing them to sustain concrete and evidence-based preventive proposals, accessible and affordable to meet the needs of high risk individuals and general population.”
