The European Society of Radiology welcomes healthcare push on the EU policy agenda

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) warmly welcomes the ambition of Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen, a medical doctor herself, to push forward healthcare in the EU policy agenda by appointing a Commissioner for Health with a strong mandate and increased attributions. Stella Kyriakides, a health expert and a long-standing advocate for health prevention, was nominated for the post with a clear mandate to promote public health and deepen collaboration on pressing health challenges in the European Union.
