Paulina Stochniałek believes that efficient management of medical facilities is a particularly difficult challenge these days. When serving local community, one should remember about those who are the most excluded from our societies, i.e. the disabled and their families, or the elderly. Open society connects people. Local government teaches us, both in professional terms and in terms of shaping pro-social attitudes, how to act for the benefit of local communities.
Privately, she is a wife, a mother of two children, a fan of football, climbing, and exploring the Wielkopolska Region by bike.
