Introducing the June Issue, Dr Psarra, IFCC eNews editor, writes: "It was with a tightness in the heart that we all approached Barcelona for EuroMedLab 2019. We were all thinking of the recent passing of our president, Professor Howard Morris, who would have surely brightened the opening ceremony and the entire duration of the Barcelona Congress with his pleasing, charming smile and his imposing personality... His beloved wife, Dr. Helen Martin, welcomed all of us in the opening ceremony. It was a time of strong emotions." In this issue you can read how the hosts, the Spanish Society of Laboratory Medicine, lightened these thoughts and feelings with great hospitality and interesting and up-to-date events surrounded by the wonderful atmosphere of Barcelona. You will also be introduced to the candidates for the position of President-Elect, who are well known in the IFCC community. Read also an obituary for Past President Prof. René Dybkaer, respected for great vision and intellect, who also passed away recently. The vibrant life of many more events with the IFCC auspices can be reached through this issue, as well with reports form the IFCC members and a welcome to a new Corporate member.
