The IPPC community sends its best wishes for a speedy recovery to our dear friend and colleague Ralf Lopian. As many of you know, Ralf enjoys bicycling and has been touring the world for the past few years. While on his North America bicycling tour, Ralf was involved in a traffic accident earlier in the week and is currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Quebec, Canada.

Ralf has been a true leader, strong advocate of the IPPC, and champion of many significant plant health initiatives over the past 30 years, including the International Year of Plant Health 2020 and the IPPC Strategic Framework. More importantly, Ralf has been and continues to be a dear friend and colleague to all of us in the IPPC community.
