Our Board

Since 1996, we’ve provided more than $10 million in funding for clinical research and community service and extended our reach to more than 60 countries. From our early focus on tobacco cessation to our new disease-awareness campaigns, we continually strive to discover novel and innovative ways to fulfill our mission. These are the dedicated individuals who are helping to guide our work.
