Community Advisory Board

CAB 2019

Community input is vital to our success.

The Center is supported by a sixty-plus member advisory board made up of representatives from community-based organizations, neighborhood associations, universities, government agencies, biotechnology companies, healthcare systems, as well as patients and doctors. Center faculty and staff look to the community for advice at every stage of development. In addition to attending quarterly meetings, Community Advisory Board members serve on committees to help in project development.

Since 2010 we have been meeting as a group of people promoting healthy communities free of health disparities. Building a cohesive group that works well together requires good timing, shared values and commitment, and our strong focus on respect and collaboration has resulted in a low rate of turnover in membership.

Together, we developed the CAB’s mission, vision and goals early in the process and conduct annual reviews to reaffirm these constructs. We also continue to engage new members and to work together on new research, education, and advocacy initiatives
