ESPGHAN appoints Spink for children’s healthcare congress

The European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) has appointed healthcare specialist Spink to manage communications for its 50th Annual Congress.

The ESPGHAN Annual Congress, which will be held in Prague in May 2017, attracts opinion leaders in the field from across Europe.

Spink will handle relations with the medical and trade press and run an on-site and online press office and social media campaign to highlight key content from the congress.

Jo Spink, director at the agency, says: “Paediatric digestive health receives limited exposure and is under-funded so we are looking forward to the opportunity of using our experience and expertise to strengthen ESPGHAN’s communications and presence in Europe, reaching out to a wider audience and extending their political influence.”
