Experience within EMEUNET

In the country liaison subgroup, she implemented the network of the ‘Country Liaisons’ and embarked very motivated young EMEUNET members from all over EULAR countries, who then boosted the membership in their own countries. As EMEUNET chair, her main task was to overview the update of the EMEUNET website, the blooming of the Country Liaisons’ role and to defend the crucial role that Social Media would have for EMEUNET and EULAR.
