Any subscribers may take it upon themselves to establish and organize a committee that forwards the organization's mission.

This committee was formed from a need to offer support and information to those primarily without computer access. It is also an outreach for those who would rather speak in person to someone rather than by e-mail. This very large group of volunteers is headed up by Nea Paquet. In order to request a call from a Phone Pal, call 215-340-9374 or send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Nea Paquet, Phone Pals Coordinator
The members of the science committee keep an eye on new medical papers pertaining to GIST and watch for new drugs in development that might be used in treating GIST. They summarize the most applicable information on our website, keeping it an up-to-date medical and scientific resource to our GSI community.
