Introduction of a RAMS member
Hello, I am Wendy Schreurs and I am editorial editor at RAMS. As editorial editor I write non scientific articles. This means that I don't publish my own research, but write about them or other interesting medical topics. Working for RAMS gives me the opportunity to be better informed about what is going on in the medical world and at the same time it helps me to improve my English skills. My goal this year is to make sure I don't run away screaming whenever I see an English word. Moreover, I would like to be up-to-date with regard to the news of tomorrow instead of the news of yesterday, and to convey my growing enthusiasm to the readers of RAMS.
