“In 2019, the focus of the College’s policy in health care will be education as the first and most important form of disease prevention. By organizing workshops, lectures and visiting the furthest and smallest settlements in the district, we will try to raise awareness among citizens of all ages about the importance of all forms of prevention, thus facilitating the functioning of the health system, saving on potential treatment and most importantly, preserving health. ” – said Alexopoulos.
