Preventive Cardiology

Young Ambassadors represent the EAPC Young Community in their respective countries and are the main point of contact for young healthcare professionals in preventive cardiology there.

In addition to expanding the community of young researchers in the field of preventive cardiology, Young Ambassadors communicate the needs and interests of their national peers to the EAPC. They also help spread the word about EAPC initiatives and scientific activities at the national level. 

Young Ambassadors are nominated for a 2-year mandate with the possibility to extend their mandate for two additional years upon validation by the EAPC President, for a total of 4 years.

  • Provide a report (once every six months) on their activities as Young Ambassador. The first report is due 6 months after the start of the mandate.
