Being Young, Staying Young Award

What does it mean to be “young”?

For the Vasco da Gama Movement youth is not about age, its about attitude. Youth is about the passion with which you approach your work and the spirit that you imbue to those around you. With this in mind in 2015 VdGM launched the “Being Young, Staying Young Award”, an award designed to recognise and thank senior colleagues who have made significant contributions to our network over many years and continue to inspire and support us.

#SoMe Ambassadors Network

The #SoMe Ambassadors Network of General Practice / Family Medicine is a project conducted by members of the regional Young Doctors Movements for new and future family doctors within the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA).

 

Equally Different

How do inequality and health relate? Increasing evidence indicates that many health outcomes can be linked to different levels and patterns of inequality within a given population. Despite remarkable progress in health status and life expectancy in OECD countries over the past decades, inequalities persist not only between countries, but also among specific groups population within each country. Such health inequalities are linked to many factors, including differences in exposure to risk factors and access to health care.

 

#FMChangeMakers

#FMChangeMakers is an initiative born out of a working group at the Vasco de Gama Movement Preconference of WONCA Europe Conference 2014, in Lisbon, Portugal.

 

EURIPA-VDGM and YDM Rural

The group collaborates with EURIPA (European Rural and Isolated Practitioners Association). EURIPA has included a VdGM member to their executive meetings since 2010. The aim of the collaboration between EURIPA and VdGM is to strengthen the voice of junior rural and isolated practitioners in Europe and positively contribute to improving working conditions and patient care.
