Community Advisory Board

The GHUCCTS Community Advisory Board (CAB) is designed to serve a crucial function for achieving bi-directional communication with, and guidance from the local community. Our CAB members represent diverse communities in the DC metropolitan area. They help build research partnerships in the community and they help facilitate dialogues with communities. Our CAB plays a key role in evaluating the degree to which GHUCCTS activities align with the needs and concerns of the local community.
