“Thomas Baker had a big dream for medical research 90 years ago. It is a dream that lives on in the work of the Baker Institute.” — David Finn, Baker Institute volunteer

David Finn has been volunteering day in and day out at the Baker Institute for almost 10 years. He has become a valuable member of the Baker Institute family, volunteering his time as a way of contributing to the progress of medical research. David is also a passionate historian and in recent months has been researching and documenting the 90-year history of the Institute.

Thank you David, and all the wonderful volunteers who commit their time and energy to better health and medical research.
