The closing keynote address for the WONCA Europe Vienna conference was replaced with a play, The Art of Being a Family Doctor, written and directed by Dr Carl Steylaerts of Belgium (far right in photo).
The international cast of the play were a mix of ‘senior family doctors’, namely, WONCA President-elect, Michael Kidd (Australia), Luisa Pettigrew (UK), and Carl Steylaerts (Belgium); as well as ‘younger family doctors’, namely, Vasco da Gama leaders Raluca Zoitanu (Romania), Mario Malnar (Croatia), and Christian Schiller (Austria). The video was produced by Carl Steylaerts and dedicated to WONCA president, Prof Rich Roberts. Also featuring on the video were session chairs Job Metsemakers (Netherlands), Reinhold Glehr (Austria); and Vasco da Gama leaders Harris Lygidakis, Sara Rigon, and Ana Margarida Cruz.
A video of the performance is now available for online viewing.
The WONCA Europe Vienna conference website now hosts an extensive gallery of photographs from the event.
