Interim Director Named
We are pleased to announce that Denise Gass, currently communications chair of the FIRST Board of Directors, has been named as Interim Director of FIRST.
In this role, Denise will work together with the staff to execute on the organization's near-term goals and deliverables, while helping the FIRST Board make an updated assessment of resource needs. She will step down from her Board role and transition her focus to priorities as Interim Director.
Denise is affected with ARCI-CIE, and her family joined FIRST in 1981, the year it was founded. She brings a passion for pushing research, connecting with families, and ichthyosis advocacy. She has been a valued member of the FIRST Board for four years. Please join us in thanking Denise for her continued commitment to advancing the FIRST mission and congratulate her on her new interim position.
