President Roberto Avalos 2016 Officers President Roberto Avalos Past President Walter Marrou General Secretary Milton Ramos Treasurer Claudio Mendez Editor Danilo Ocaranza Editor Danilo Ocaranza Presidents Greetings Reported by Christian Rochefort Q. International Councilor Section IV officers and the Board of Directors elected for the period of 2016-2017 are defined as follows President Roberto Avalos Chile Secretary Milton Ramos Chile Treasurer Claudio Mendez Chile and Councilor Alvaro Gadola Bergara Uruguay. Brazil District The goal of this District is to be present throughout the vast country by the exchange of colleagues together with the planning of activities. During 2015 Brazil chose five prestigious odontologists to become part of the ICD. Unfortunately the difficult economic situation that this country is undergoing did not give the chance to organize the Investiture Ceremony. Due to the same reason 13 Fellows set themselves apart from the ICD in 2015 as the purchasing power in Brazil does not go along with the American dollar variation. Brazil currently has 42 active Fellows. The new Board of Directors which starts working in January 2016 was elected as follows President Halbert Villalba General Secretary Fabio Monteiro and Treasurer Ricardo Salgado. The prevention program continued as well as the diagnosis and treatment of patients who suffer from chronic kidney failure and transplant patients. Doctors Elcio Magdalena Giovani and Rosimery Batista Martins were in charge of the weekly medical attention of the patients.
