Dear friends and colleagues of Aerospace Medicine in Europe,

As 2016 soon draws to an end, and most of us hoperfully have some time off with family and friends at Christmas, I think it is appropriate to share some thoughts with the great ESAM family of Aerospace Medicine in Europe.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the working of ESAM, in particular the Executive Committee and past president Kevin Herbert for the great work done the past year, and the Advisory Board so efficiently led by Ries Simons, as well as our representatives in different collaborative fora with EASA, AsMa, EAAP and ECA.  Read more

Since that moment on, all of them started working together to work for health and safety for all persons involved in aviation and space operations, coordinating European aerospace medicine in the applicable fora.
