    IBMS takes pride in introducing Hyon Kalin, Founder of IBMS to the Global Medical Community. Hyon Kalin is a person beautiful in and out, wife of IBMS Chairman, Dr. David P.Kalin and a proud mom to three sons.

    Hyon started off her career working full time for the USPS, and later moved on to becoming the Financial Advisor for World Marketing Security (WMS) for about 3 years, and she also held the position of Vice Chairman of the Korean School Board. Hyon has an interesting story behind the birth of IBMS – when Hyon and Dr.Kalin decided to have a child, they had challenges with the conception. The couple decided to have their child and with the challenges they faced, decided to opt in for invitro fertilization. At the time, the costs of invitro fertilization were skyrocketing in the US and South Korea offered them a much warmer reception and environment for the invitro fertilization process for the couple. The invitro fertilization process was a huge success, and with the birth of their beautiful son, Aviel Kalin, was also born the International Organization, IBMS. The whole founding idea of IBMS was to bring all global medical professionals under one umbrella, and to promote global medical tourism.
