Example 1: My name is Dr. David Johnson and I am the ISN Greek Translator and ISN Greek Medical Editor. I am Chief of Rheumatology at Bigwig University in Zurich, Switzerland…

I graduated from BigTime University School of Medicine.

I have conducted several scleroderma studies, as follows…

The first scleroderma patient I met had a profound impact on my life and on my choice of a medical specialty, as I wanted to help combat this disease. I am happy to be a part of bringing more information about scleroderma to people in my native language, through my work with the ISN.

Example 2: Hello, I am Trudy Winters, your ISN Pulmonary Guide from Timbuktu. I was diagnosed with Diffuse Scleroderma in 1998. I used to work as a secretary for a major insurance company, but I had to retire on disability a few years ago. I enjoy reading mystery novels and gardening. My children help with a lot of household and garden chores because my hands are also badly affected by scleroderma.

I have Pulmonary Fibrosis, and I am on oxygen, which is why I chose to help as a Guide for the pulmonary pages. Please feel free to email me with any questions or information you may have on this topic.
