From the President: Behind the scenes
Life as the new President has been quiet geographically but busy online.

Du Président: En coulisse
Ma vie de nouvelle présidente a été calme géographiquement mais mouvementée en ligne. Il y a une tension étrange entre leadership et service avec la responsabilité de faire avancer les choses et de les améliorer sur la toile de fond des routines ordinaires de la vie quotidienne.

De La Presidenta: Entre bastidores
La vida como nueva Presidenta de WONCA ha sido, de momento, bastante tranquila desde un punto de vista geográfico, pero bastante ajetreada en la red. Existe una extraña tensión entre liderazgo y servicio, mediante la cual la responsabilidad de “seguir moviéndose y seguir mejorando” es lo que está establecido para luchar contra las repeticiones de la rutina diaria. En realidad, como médicos y médicas de familia, nuestro trabajo más importante es el que hacemos una y otra vez, en nuestras consultas y clínicas, con nuestros pacientes y colegas.
