Krasimira Zaykova, a fourth-year medical student at Medical University – Varna, took part in a session of the European Parliament.
The Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL) designated Krasimira as a youth ambassador for Bulgaria. She presented the Youth Ambassador Programme for European Code Against Cancer (ECAC) during a public hearing of the Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA).
The hearing was focused on various issues related to improving cross-border care in the name of the fight against cancer. Krasimira participated in the “Shared Learning and Communication” section. She presented MU – Varna brilliantly, and she herself is yet another example of the excellent training and support provided by the University to its students.
Krasimira appealed for more generous investment in cancer prevention and in evidence-based strategies that can save millions of lives.
