At a recent meeting with IES Brain Research Foundation president, Faye Simon Harac, undefeated professional boxer, Chris Algieri declared his interest in the IES Brain Research Foundations mission.

We are pleased to include Chris Algieri as a member of the IES Brain Research Foundation Honorary Board.
