Foppe van Mil Memorial Lecture

In 2022, during the opening session of the 8th PCNE Working Symposium in Lisbon, Portugal we launched on Friday 11 February for the first time the Foppe van Mil Memorial Lecture.

This lecture is dedicated to the memory of our colleague and friend, whose lifelong dedication on fostering pharmaceutical care research was such an inspiration for many of us. The spirit of Dr. Foppe van Mil should be kept alive. The board decided to have two persons for this lecture. That is Prof. Filipa da Costa (Portugal) as senior person who worked with Foppe and will introduce the spirit of Foppe, followed by a lecture by Joao Aguiar as a younger PhD who was mentored by Prof. Filipa da Costa.


The lecture  comprised testimonials by important friends of Foppa van Mil: Charles Hepler, Yolande Hanssens, Kurt Hersberger, Tommy Westerlund, Marina Odalivic, Martin Henman, Martin Schulz, Catherine Duggan, James McElnay.

The whole lecture together with the testimonials has been recorded. On request, access to the MP4 file can be provided.
