The ESM board is pleased to launch a series of Education Webinars to connect and stay in touch with our membership, as so many events have been postponed or cancelled as a result of the COVID19 crisis. The webinars are organised by ESM thanks to a generous contribution from BD, who have not had any influence on content of the presentations. We thank BD very much for their continuous support of our society.
