Dear colleagues, dear friends,
As we all know time flies, and indeed we arrive at the final year of the second term of Presidency of our Norwegian colleague Anthony Wagstaff, who did a great job, especially with the link of our ECAM to our AsMA friends in Oslo and Prague, and now also to our friends of the Academy for Paris in September 2020!
Thus we have to vote for a new President-Elect at the upcoming ESAM General Assembly which will be held at the venue of the 2019 ICASM congress in Debrecen on 8 September at 6 pm:

Dear member associations of ESAM, The European Society of Aerospace Medicine – ESAM – is seeking closer collaboration with its European national aerospace medicine societies in order to promote and share more activities in aviation and space medicine across Europe.
Therefore please find enclosed a letter from ESAM President Anthony Wagstaff introducing the concept of Circle of Experts. This concept has been developed by the ESAM Advisory Board and is envisioned to serve as a platform for future collaboration and influence amongst aerospace medicine associations.
Dear Brigitte, dear Vincent,
As President of ESAM I would like to express my deep sympathy for the tragic fire and damage to the Notre Dame recently. The fire struck at a symbol of faith, culture and beauty, not only for Europeans, but for the whole world. Of course the loss is greatest for all Parisians.
You and all our friends in SOFRAMAS are at the heart of ESAM, and I think I speak for all ESAM members when I say that we are all united in support for you all in our thoughts. Luckily, no lives were lost, and the Notre Dame will no doubt be be rebuilt to former glory.
Roland Vermeiren, founder member and previous President of ESAM, Head of Medical Service of EUROCONTROL, is this year the first President of the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) from continental Europe in their 90-year history.Read more ...
The "NATO Occupational Aviation Cardiology Working Group” has produced 10 scientific papers on Aviation Cardiology after presenting 3 NATO panels in the last 3 years during AsMa meetings.
European specialists have been important in this work, which has substantial practical relevance for evaluation of both civilian and military air crew.

Dear constituent organisations of ESAM,
The 1st International Conference of Aerospace Medicine (ICAM) is planned for Paris on September 24-26 September 2020 and preparations are going very well. We hope to see you there!
We are hoping, and believe, that teaming up in order to make the best possible conference in Aerospace Medicine will turn out to be a great success, scientifically and socially. Aviation is global by nature, and our collaboration is going very well. Therefore, The European Society of Aerospace Medicine (ESAM) and the International Academy of Aviation and Space Medicine (IAASM), together with The Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) are in the early stages of planning a 2nd (ICAM) in Europe in 2022.Read more ...
This was a lively and fruitful meeting, with discussions mainly centred at improving the communication with our member associations/societies and associates, and with the wider public. We established a working group with the task to develop a communication strategy, to find ways for ESAM to be more visible not only through its website but also by using popular social media channels.Read more ...
End of January 2019 we received the sad news that Dr. Annette Ruge, our colleague for many, many years had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.
