Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) consists of local citizens who:

  • Are interested in improving the health of local seniors impacted by health-related disparities 
  • Are willing to contribute to and support the research, outreach, and education efforts and activities of the HBEC

 The CAB is responsible for attending quarterly meetings to contribute to planning the Lunch & Learn series and bi-annual Newsletter. They attend the Lunch & Learn events, promote HBEC programs throughout the community, and recruit for our research registry the Participant Resource Pool (PRP). Lastly, they are responsible for reviewing and approving all research studies that apply to use the PRP for recruitment.
