  • "I am very pleased to take part in FAI's new steering committee," said Committee Chair Gina Clowes. "For 11 years FAI has led the way in funding research to find a cure to this life-threatening disease.

As a group, we will devote their attention, resources and expertise toward making sure the federal government is on the leading edge to find a cure."
