Board Members 2017-19


As current board President our small group of current board members needs your help in identifying and connecting to a wider pool of potential board and committee members. That’s why we are turning to you.  We are looking for board members who believe in our mission and are willing to be active member of ANPAD.

We raise public awareness of PKU and Allied Disorders, detected at birth through newborn screening and have created a support network for patients and their families to learn, connect and encourage each other. ANPAD coordinates its efforts with help of the genetics team at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

See below our “Description for Board Members” to give you a sense of what we are looking for and to spark your thinking in advance about the types of people, skills and connections we are hoping to recruit.

While we do ask that our board members play an active role, we pride ourselves on supporting each other as a team and believe that we offer an opportunity for our members to learn and grow with the organization.

Sincerely,

Ann Hall

ANPAD President
