EAPC-Young-Oksana-Sivakova.jpgOksana Sivakova, EAPC Young Ambassador from the Russian Federation:

“Being an EAPC Young Ambassador gives us an opportunity to bring preventive thinking and values to a new generation of cardiologists and other specialists in our countries, which makes lives longer, healthier and happier. Also, this is an opportunity to creatively unite young cardiologists in my country and make friends and cooperate with Ambassadors from other countries"

EAPC-Young-Vladimír-Tuka.jpgVladimir Tuka, EAPC Young Ambassador from the Czech Republic:

“The EAPC is a wonderful open community. The opportunity of being an EAPC Young Ambassador opens the door to the network of young experts in the world and helps in the communication with local authorities about preventive and sport cardiology.”


EAPC-Young-Stefan-Busnatu-.jpgStefan Busnatu, EAPC Young Ambassador from Romania:

“For me, it is a privilege to be the Romanian national representative of the EAPC Young Ambassadors group. This gives me the opportunity to be part of a young team of national representatives that work together towards promoting preventive cardiology strategies throughout Europe.  By being supported and acknowledged by the EAPC network I am more empowered for promoting preventive actions into my local environment.”

“What's your career direction and values on the way of preventive cardiology? Participate in the EAPC Young Community! Do you want to better represent your national peers’ interests and needs and to liaise with the EAPC? Become an EAPC Young Ambassador! I hope together we can represent the EAPC spirit and convey the EAPC beliefs!"
