A staff of nearly 15 works on behalf of the National Rosacea Society (NRS) to serve people with rosacea, the many others who are touched by the disorder and those who contribute toward its care and understanding. The Board of Directors sets the goals of the NRS and evaluates and approves plans and program services, while independent trustees and certified public auditors provide financial oversight. The Medical Advisory Board evaluates study applications and approves the awarding of research grants, and the Expert Committee develops standard criteria for the classification, grading and management of the disorder. Members of the Medical Advisory Board and Expert Committee also edit and evaluate all health information developed and produced by the NRS. In addition, research grant recipients include a growing number of medical scientists worldwide.
