The UW/Fred Hutch Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) Community Action Board (CAB) is a group of key stakeholders from our community who serve in an advisory capacity, providing a community perspective on important issues in HIV/AIDS research.
The CFAR CAB's mission is to encourage communication and to build trustworthy collaborations between UW CFAR researchers and community members and community-based organizations to enhance local, national, and international prevention, treatment, and education activities.
Specific goals of the CAB
- Make HIV/STD research more transparent and useful by engaging CAB members to help develop improved and targeted information dissemination to the community.
- Use CAB activities to help CFAR affiliates and researchers learn about local community organizations, concerns, activities and opportunities for collaboration.
- Communicate CFAR services to communities and identify important research topics to ensure community relevancy and collaboration.
The CAB is comprised of a group of committed individuals, including representatives from HIV-affected groups and organizations. The CAB Steering Committee is listed below. Working Groups include steering committee members and a broader membership from the communities they serve.
The UW/Fred Hutch CFAR CAB meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month, 6:30-7:30pm. Please contact the CFAR CAB Manager if you are interested in joining us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
