Presidential address

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

beyond being a great pleasure it is an incredible honor for me to serve as President of the ESPN for the next two years.

Two are in my mind the features that have, since the beginning of its history, made the ESPN a light to watch to in the continental pediatric neurosurgical community. First is its pioneer role in postgraduate education of new generations, a continuous success in the now more than 50 years history of the Society; second are the principles that guide  its central core , the Executive Board, whose constant common willingness to work as a group with the same passion, instead of favouring the enlightening of single members, has allowed to reach a team guided progress in our speciality, testified for example by the always cited ESPN surveys and guidelines,  the up do date roadmap which gives to every member the way, to be part of a united family.

Condolences for the loss of our friend and colleague

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the ESPN I would like to express our deep sorrow on the very sad news of James Goodrich untimely loss. He was a great man, a great mentor and teacher to many of us, an inspiration to all of us and a great friend to me personally and to everyone of us who knew him.

He was a greater supporter of ESPN and a teacher to our courses for over 25 years. He was loved by anyone who was fortunate enough to meet him and talk to him.

It is a great loss for the wider Pediatric Neurosurgery Family.

He will be remembered with great affection.

May He Rest In Peace.

Spyros Sgouros
President of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery
