The company recently announced the appointment of former U.S. congressman Stephen Buyer to its Board of Directors.

Unfortunately, auto immune diseases have clustered in my wife's family. I am attracted by FSD's medical research to tame and define the unknown by challenging the edges of medical science to provide relief to people suffering from fibromyalgia and other serious illnesses."
Raza Bokhari, MD, Executive Co-Chairman and CEO, stated: "In welcoming Steve Buyer to the FSD Pharma Board of Directors and announcing a share consolidation, the Company has made an immense positive stride forward.
