Team Growth

Our team had a bright new addition over the summer.

Tanya Sharma joined us over her holidays to get to know more about what we do here at ACADI. She is a medical student in London and lives in Luxembourg when she is not working towards becoming a future doctor. It was great to have her on board for a few weeks and we hope to see her again very soon!
