What I would hope to achieve as an Ordinary Council Member My aim will be, to increase the existing collaboration between members of our society from different countries in educational and research areas. Earthquakes and changing climate conditions require special attention to Renal Disaster. I would like to participate and increase ERA-EDTA’s activities on this area. Socio-economic situation is not uniform even through Europe. Especially with increasing migration and increasing density of low middle-income populations, combining efforts to find new logistic and social solutions becomes more important. Finally, ERA-EDTA Ordinary Council member announcement emphasized and encouraged Women candidates’ application, which inspired and enthusiastically encouraged me to take part and contribute my knowledge, energy and enthusiasm to European Community of Nephrology. I Feel very privileged to be able to apply for ordinary membership of ERA-EDTA Council.
