Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is comprised of stakeholders and professionals from across our communities of interest.

HIPRC’s Community Advisory Board (CAB) meets quarterly to establish goals, build on its mission, and to elicit feedback on community outreach efforts, press releases, and other dissemination efforts.

The CAB is extremely engaged with all HIPRC activities throughout the year—we hope to continue to strengthen these important community relationships!
