I am very thankful and humbled by all the messages I have received here, elsewhere in social media, and via email.
You know how much I love DHF: it's been my life for the past 7+ years, and nearly another baby that Andreina (my wife, and co-founder) brought to the world, and then saw such an incredible family grow around it and care for it so deeply.
I have made the decision to step down for very personal reasons, to focus on my family's future for the next few years. However, I won't become a stranger to TuDiabetes, DHF, or the DOC. I plan to remain involved as an active volunteer with the organization, and continue to follow and support the amazing work the DHF team does.
I have been SO impressed with the passion and dedication shown by the board of directors at DHF all along, and particularly in the period leading to this announcement. They all worked SO HARD. I stand 100% behind their decision to elect Melissa as interim Executive Director. We have in her a new leader that I hope everyone will join me in welcoming, rallying behind, and supporting.
As for me, when I know what the (professional) future holds, I will be sure to share it. :)
