Donna Mobile participates in Congress of the Umbrella Organization of German Speaking Osteoporosis Self-Help Associations and Patient Oriented Osteoporosis Organization (DOP), 5-6 March, 2004, Leipzig
Around 190 self-help group leaders from Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part in the Congress. Through a Targeted Support Program grant, IOF facilitated the participation of Donna Mobile representatives at the Congress. Donna Mobile members both attended the workshops and participated as workshop leaders, at panel discussions and as speakers. The following workshops were attended: “Removal of barriers and networking – constructive cooperation between self-help groups, doctors and local political decision makers”; Leading a self help group: from group dynamics to team development; New tasks for self-help – on the way to self-confidence and autonomy.
Gabi Büchler, manager of Donna Mobile, reported that the important insights gained from the workshops will be implemented in the management of Donna Mobile’s self-help groups.
