A New Year message from ERS President Professor Tobias Welte

2 January, 2019

Happy New Year from everyone at the European Respiratory Society (ERS). On behalf of the Society, I would like to wish you all a truly great start to 2019.

The majority of my time as ERS President will take place this year and I am keen to make the most of this prestigious position by contributing to the progression of the Society and it's impact in the respiratory arena - working collaboratively with the ERS office and alongside it’s valued members.

Over the coming months, ERS is offering many opportunities and activities to both members and non-members, so to give you time to plan for some of these we have pulled together a calendar of activities for your convenience.

I would like to encourage all members to play an active role in ERS in 2019, not only to benefit from what ERS has to offer, but also to positively contribute to the future of respiratory research and medicine.

Finally, I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported ERS over the past 12 months.
