New leadership at European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare)

Tiziana Codenotti, President of the Eurocare Board said, “The Board of the Eurocare is sad to say goodbye to Mariann. I am grateful to her for her 14 years of hard and dedicated work, which involved significant accomplishments in alcohol policies in the EU as well as in the wider European region and her contribution to alcohol policy will always be valued and remembered. We are very pleased that Florence has accepted the position of Eurocare Secretary General. In her previous position, Florence worked with EU decision makers to ensure that tobacco control received adequate political attention and she coordinated several successful pan-European campaigns, including the revision of the EU Tobacco Products Directive. We look forward to her leadership at Eurocare”.
