Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is comprised of local leaders from a broad range of organizations, who have worked to reduce barriers to research participation by increasing public trust and making research opportunities more accessible.

The CAB will:

  • Provide input and direction on:
    • Priority areas for the Institute seed/pilot grant opportunities to advance community health and bi-directional engagement between communities and academic researchers.
    • Advancing public health community-engaged teaching and research opportunities at the university.
    • The Institute for Public Health Annual Conference theme from year to year.
    • Community engagement and partnership opportunities for the six Institute centers and other initiatives.
  • Provide consultations to Institute faculty scholars (across all seven Washington University schools) as requested on a broad set of topics relevant to clinical and translational science.
