Eight years ago, PCORI’s 21-member Board of Governors convened for the first time to start building a major new national health research funder from the ground up. I’m reminded of those early days–and how much PCORI has achieved since–as we welcome a new class of Board members who replace some of those who were with us for that very first meeting in 2010.

We’re thrilled by the US Government Accountability Office’s appointment of seven exceptional people from across the healthcare community to serve six-year terms on our Board. They fill openings created by the rotation off the Board of six of the original members who just completed their terms of service and another opening caused by last year’s untimely death of a seventh colleague. The GAO also named current Board member Christine Goertz, DC, PhD, to a three-year term as vice chair. All take up their new duties during our Oct. 29 Board meeting in Washington, DC.
