FIRST member Matt Alba, a reporter with PHL17, visited the national office to talk with FIRST's Executive Director about the recent incident with American Airlines. This story resonated with Matt, since he and his sister Brittany, are also affected with ichthyosis. Matt can relate to his own personal experience of discrimination and even bullying as a young child. FIRST will continue to advocate for the ichthyosis community, and all individuals affected by skin disorders, to educate the airline industry.
