PCD Foundation Leadership

The PCD Foundation relies on the leadership of a Board of Directors, comprised of parents and patients directly affected by PCD. This board is responsible for ensuring proper management of finances, operations and grant-making programs to advance our mission and goals. The board sets the strategic direction and oversees foundation governance as set forth in our incorporation documents and policies.

The PCDF Board of Directors is engaged in day-to-day management of the activities of the PCDF. In addition, we rely on expert advice from our Medical and Scientific Council (MSAC) and our non-medical Advisory Council (AC) for input and guidance in specialty areas.
