What I would hope to achieve as an Ordinary Council Member As LNDTA president I know nephrologist from all over three Baltic countries, I know actualities of
small countries and I can contribute to making closer big and small European countries. Being many years liaison officer in ISN SRI programme, I had the opportunity of getting to know nephrology situation in Belarus and in Ukraine. I can contribute into the developing stronger relation between ERA-EDTA and Belarus and Ukraine. As well I am active in undergraduate and postgraduate education.
