"The joy of the ESC is that you have this large group of like-minded people with a passion for cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular disease prevention who are willing to walk the extra mile for patient care."
"One particularly useful aspect which is developed considerably in recent years is the e-learning portal the ESCeL portal which has a fantastic access, to e-learning resources. And I found that very useful for my own educational development."
"My participation in the European Society of Cardiology community has been a successful experience. I've been able to have contact with leaders in the field of cardiology and these leaders in the field have enriched my own career and also have allowed me to meet not only colleagues but also friends."
"The wish for the future of the ESC and the vision I have for the ESC, first is, get even better connected with physicians, nurses, allied professionals and patients over Europe."
"My wish for the future of the ESC community is to promote sound unbiased research, to create solidarity among European cardiologists and to achieve harmonisation of Cardiology training."
"And also I hope for the ESC to continue to bring together all the specialists working in cardiology from different countries and from the different sub specialties within cardiology."
"My wish is that the community continue going like it is now and put a little focus on what is the patient in terms of engagement and empowerment of the patient. "
"The first [best memory] is very long time ago, when for the first time, I had anabstract accepted for oral presentation in ESC Congress twenty years ago".
"Our society gives us the facilities to update our knowledge then having a better result in our daily clinical practice but also in research what is so important, as important as clinical practice for ESC."
"I think the ESC is not only a community, it's not only a network but it's a family. And one really feels one is part of a very very large the largest cardiology network perhaps in Europe and most of the world today."
"Actually, the opportunities that the ESC gives us is to really network with nurses beyond Europe and to network with nurses in countries like America and Australia and China."
"To belong to the ESC is the same as belonging to the largest community of health care professionals taking care of patients with cardiovascular disease and that gives me the best insights I need for the multidisciplinary approach to my patient care."
"With the ESC community I was able to develop a very important network to share with colleagues ideas, projects, education and knowledge."
