Scientific Advisory Board


A Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) formed in 1980 is responsible for overseeing research grants approved. It is comprised of twelve professionals in the fields of medicine, research, and psychology. They donate their time and talent to review all research applications, coordinating Scientific Day at the national conference, and work with the Executive Director on research collaboration. PWSA (USA) plays a strong role in networking researchers, and advocating on a national level for appropriate research.
