EIT Health appoints two new Supervisory Board members: Dr Angela Spatharou and Felix Faucon

EIT Health has announced the appointment of Dr Angela Spatharou and Felix Faucon to its Supervisory Board following their confirmation at a Partner Assembly in January.

Dr Spatharou, Partner at McKinsey & Company, works across the United Kingdom, where she supports National Health System (NHS) payers and providers on integrated care, service redesign, quality, and productivity. She also leads the McKinsey Healthcare Systems & Services Practice in Spain.

She serves as a governor of the London School of Economics (LSE) and as a member of the LSE Audit and Risk Committee, as well as a board member of Action on Addiction, UK. She is also on the external advisory board of the US National Cancer Institute-sponsored Centre for Research Excellence in Mesoamerica for Cancer and Diabetes in Mexico City.

In this critical time for healthcare and innovation across Europe, I am delighted to join the Supervisory Board of EIT Health. EIT Health, with its extensive network and capabilities, it has a unique role to play in the health innovation ecosystem in Europe and can act as a catalyst, supporting the ‘digital first’ transition of European Health systems. I look forward to getting to know the EIT Health broader team and to working with other Supervisory Board members to support the organisation’s important work over the next few years.
