We are delighted to announce that Kristiyan Dimitrov, the IGA representative for the Bulgarian Gaucher Association, has agreed to join the IGA Board as a co-opted member.
Kristiyan was one of the first patients diagnosed in Bulgaria and when he came of age, he took his mother’s position as a vice-chairperson in the Bulgarian Gaucher Association. Since then he became their IGA representative, taking part in various events: biennial members meeting, EWGGD and 'Go with Gaucher'
Kris attended the University of Sofia, specialising in Slavic Studies. As a result he developed an interest in languages and literature, and tries to read as much as possible in his spare time.
Kristiyan is looking forward to contributing to the Gaucher cause.
