Eleni’s passion for science and healthcare began at an early age leading to her obtaining a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Patra, Greece. During her studies, she had the chance to get more familiar with laboratory work by joining the Faculty of Pharmacy at Charles University in the Czech Republic, through the Erasmus programme.
After graduating, she moved to the Czech Republic where she was pursuing a Ph.D. degree before joining the Angels Initiative. Previously, she had worked in both community and hospital pharmacies, getting to experience firsthand how important it is to listen to the patient’s needs and providing them with the right solutions.
Eleni believes that being an Angels consultant is the perfect opportunity for her to use her scientific knowledge and connect with healthcare professionals to improve stroke care in Greece. She says, “A consultant has a tremendous responsibility by having a direct impact on patients’ lives. I feel privileged for the opportunity to give life a chance.”
