WARNING: SPAM EMAILS appearing to be sent from EFC President 

Dear Colposcopists and EFC members,

We have received reports of some scam emails, asking for money, appearing to come from Professor Pekka Nieminen, EFC President.
The emails have been sent from fake addresses using his name; examples of the latest fake addresses are pekka.neiminen@hus.fi and drpekka.nieminen@hus.fi.
Please be aware that such emails are in circulation and that we will never ask any money transfers in “urgent situations” or similar. Please DO NOT REPLY to those.
Since this is not the first time it has occurred, we urge you to always verify the address when you receive an e-mail with Prof. Pekka Nieminen’s name as sender and not to respond to those who are not from Pekka.Nieminen@hus.fi, his ONLY current contact address.

Thank you for your attention!

IN MEMORIAM of Ulrich Petry

Dear Colposcopists and EFC members,

Our former President, Professor Ulrich Petry has passed away few days ago after a rapid and serious illness.

Ulrich was a dear friend to many, a true gentleman and a brilliant scientist. Ulrich was a keystone for our society EFC and an inspiration for a generation of colposcopists, not just in his own Clinic in Wolfsburg or in Germany, but in the whole Europe.

He made a huge contribution to colposcopy, science and above all to our European good relations and friendships.

We will miss Ulli and we remember him in silent mourning.
