"I was able to help to expand ISUOG's mission to Brazil and Australia."
"I am committed to supporting ISUOG’s membership growth and providing educational opportunities in underrepresented regions of the world."
"I believe these [ISUOG translated guidelines) will improve the quality of ultrasound scans in Portuguese-speaking countries, particularly in Brazil."

The CSC also has the responsibility to provide guidance for individuals and sub-committees regarding the development of Consensus Statements or Guidelines on behalf of ISUOG. Therefore, members who are planning to develop such documents must submit a CSC Proposal Form at a very early stage of the process to minimize potential problems that may arise from late review of a nearly completed document that may not fully comply with either the expectations or best interests of the Society.
