World Congress Student Staff

These are the people that have sacrificed holidays and sleep in order to prepare for the student world congress and the BAN-Tour :-)

World Congress Team

Roman Sandoz (30) found himself being the main student world congress organizer since the IPPNW student body in Switzerland is virtually non-existant. He has been hooked on IPPNW ever since participating in the European Student Conference in Porto in April 2007 and is very grateful to have found some helpful hands in organizing this congress. Back in normal life (which might finally happen once this congress is over) Roman finishes his fifth year of medical studies at the University of Zurich, loves to go trial biking, photographing and spending time with his friends.
