Dr. Ian Crozier is one of IDI’s most esteemed guest trainers. A former participant stated, “We were fortunate that our course was facilitated by Dr. Ian Crozier.  Dr. Ian was brilliant. He not only brought a deep knowledge of the subject to the classroom, but infiltrated the sessions with facts and practical tips from his general medicine practice.”

When Ebola broke out in West Africa, he traveled to Sierra Leone to help, eventually contracting the deadly virus himself.  After receiving care at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Dr. Crozier is now recuperating. Read his incredible story at http://bit.ly/IanCrozier

The IDI family is very glad to hear of Dr. Crozier’s continuing recovery.
