A Word from Dimitrios P. Kontoyiannis, MD

Dear Colleagues:

As I write this, I am amazed at how quickly 2017 has flown by. On behalf of the International Immunocompromised Host Society (ICHS), I want to thank all of you for your efforts to support the Society  in 2017. I wish all of you a blessed holiday season, and a new year filled with health, success and joy for you and your families. It has been a privilege for me leading this historic society, and I am looking forward to see and interact with each of you in Athens in June 2018 during our exciting 20th ICHS biennial meeting.
