• Mission Statement

     

     

    The Rosacea Research & Development Institute [RRDi] is the first non-profit organization made by rosaceans for rosacea sufferers that will collect donations for rosacea research to be performed by physicians and biomedical research scientists and includes these specific goals:

    Goal # 1: To be the first non profit organization for rosacea patient advocacy.

    Goal # 2: To have a majority of rosaceans the right to vote who sits on the board of directors.

    Goal # 3: To make this the first rosacea specific non profit organization to utilize most of the donations for research and treatment development. This is in stark contrast to non profit organizations that spend 50% to 60% of their donations on paying their staff, board of directors or private contractors.

    Goal # 4: To allow rosacea sufferers to guide where and how the money is spent on rosacea research and be the first non profit organization to allow rosaceans to be members of the corporation. Until June 7, 2004, the date of incorporation, there had been no other non profit organization that allowed input from rosacea sufferers.

    Goal # 5: To attain a level such that the RRDi can directly impact medical articles published on the subject, information disseminated to physicians and rosacea sufferers and apply positive pressure on the medical community that does not take rosacea seriously.

    Goal #6: Continue to publish the Journal of the RRDi and fund all authors who contribute an article.
