Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board is comprised of a diverse group of individuals with strong ties to local communities within the St. Louis region, including surrounding counties. The Board helps support the integration of clinical and translational research with community priorities, needs, and practice. Specifically, members:

  1. provide direct input into the goals, strategies and activities of the ICTS and Institute for Public Health;

  2. offer perspectives on gaps in health services and research in the region;

  3. recommend key stakeholders and community leaders for inclusion as members, in activities, and in discussions;

  4. support the development of community-university relationships; and

  5. strategically disseminate information about important health issues and initiatives to the broader community.
