IRIS Ambassadors

Ambassadors help disseminate IRIS guidelines within the veterinary community in regions where English is not widely spoken and/or there is no representation on the IRIS board. IRIS ambassadors serve a vital role helping veterinary practitioners better diagnose, understand and treat renal disease in cats and dogs.
