We have had a few recent changes at IDDSI:
We warmly welcome
Alen Dominguez on board as our new Marketing and Communications consultant. We would like to also extend our deep gratitude to
Kevin Ly, for his previous work and support for IDDSI.
We would also like to extend a big thank you to our past Board Member
from Germany. Sonke was instrumental in the first IDDSI pilot project in Kempen, Germany and worked diligently to implement IDDSI into clinical practice. Details can be found
We would like to warmly welcome
