DOHaD Council Members

The DOHaD Society Council is composed of individuals elected from and by the Members of the
CIO. Council positions represent the CIO Subcommittees, editor of JDOHaD, all geographical
regions of the world, and different broad scientific disciplines: basic sciences, clinical sciences,
epidemiology, public health, policy and economics.

The Council meets virtually 3-4 times a year, and in person at each World Congress every two years.
Elected members serve on Council for four years, with each term beginning and closing with the
Society’s Annual General Meeting (held at that year's World Congress). All Council Members serve
on one of seven Council Subcommittees: Advocacy, Communications, Education, Scientific
Program, Sponsorship and Fundraising, Trainee/ECR Association, and Workshop Committees.

Society Members can self-nominate or be nominated for a position on Council. NOTE: If there are at
least two nominations for one Council post, it will go to a Membership-wide vote, otherwise
nominations are reviewed (and approved) by Council members. Detailed information about the
Council composition and election protocols may be found in the Society Constitution.
