Thanks Jason. I am very happy to be on board. 

I am not part of the Young Professionals Chronic Disease network, but would like to be.

I am heavily involved in NCD advocacy, teaching, course coordination, research and policy development through my PhD and position with the University of Copenhagen.

Look forward to exploring ideas, maybe through Skype or email.
