2017 Laureate of the BYSY Award: Luisa Pettigrew

Being Young, Staying Young Award

What does it mean to be young? For the Vasco da Gama Movement youth is not about age, it's about attitude. Youth is about the passion with which you approach your work and the spirit that you imbue to those around you.


2015 Laureate of the BYSY Award: Per Kallestrup

Per Kallestrup has been an inspirational figure to many within VdGM. Being responsible for the establishment of the VdGM Hippokrates Exchange Programme he has remained in close contact with its development and continues to act in a senior supervisory capacity. He plays an active role within the VdGM community and frequently attends meetings at which he motivates, enthuses and galvanizes young GPs and Family Doctors - as he describes, the "Troubadours of general practice".
