Purpose and Activities

FAMRI's mission is to sponsor scientific and medical research for the early diagnosis, and cure of diseases and medical conditions caused from exposure to tobacco smoke.


Established in 2000 in FL - Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute (FAMRI) was established as a result of a Class Action suit brought on behalf of non-smoking flight attendants in October 1991 in Dade County Circuit Court (Miami) against the tobacco industry. The suit sought damages for diseases and deaths caused to flight attendants by exposure to second hand tobacco smoke in airline cabins. The settlement included the establishment of a not-for-profit medical research foundation with funding by the tobacco industry of $300 million
