"Health is a precious asset. We must launch more initiatives to help people remain healthy. They should not wait until they are already sick before they take action. As a pharmacist, I think advice and information are especially important. I am dedicated to helping our population remain healthy and active as long as possible. I am therefore very pleased to be a part of FGÖ. This organization has put countless health promotion ideas and plans to practice for young and old. It is the ideal platform for projects on health promotion and prevention."
