Pictured Left to right (top row) Hilmi Orhan (Member), Kai Savolainen (2019 LOC), Felix Carvalho (President-Elect), Martin Wilks (General-Secretary) and Emanuela Corsini (Member). Front row: Heather Wallace (President). "We appreciate all the EUROTOX members at SOT who volunteered to help us man the booth, and made this a successful experience", said Heather Wallace. "The EC has been working hard to increase the visibility of EUROTOX at specific events, but we can't do it without our members, so we are happy when they are eager to help", she concluded. In addition, to their PR duties, members were actively involved in program activities. For instance, Felix Carvalho chaired the SOT-EUROTOX debate as speakers Martin van den Berg (EUROTOX) and Paul Foster (SOT) tackled the topic of "Classification of Substances as Endocrine Disruptors Has a Public Health Benefit", while Heather Wallace introduced the Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture, delivered by Nigel Gooderham, On Wednesday morning, EC members meet with SOT leadership to continue to discuss on-going SOT-EUROTOX collaboration projects.
