A special education professional, working part time for an adult literacy program. She has been involved in ALAN since 2010.

Almuth Bredimus


Vice President

 

She has worked for many years as an advisor to the Executive Committee of the Medical University of Hannover. Since her retirement in 2012, she has dedicated her time to ALAN. Since 2014 she is Vice President. 
 
She believes the “National Plan for Rare Diseases”, announced by the government, laid the important foundation to improve the quality of life of people in Luxembourg that are affected by a rare disease. ALAN was able to contribute significantly to this foundation. She sees an intention for structural improvement in the implementation of the national plan and believes that linking medicine, therapy and counselling is the right way towards helping those affected by a rare disease.
