The Community Advisory Board for UW's Health Promotion Research Center; January 2020

The University of Washington Health Promotion Research Center’s Community Advisory Board includes representatives from many of our community partner organizations and our programs.

UW HPRC researchers establish a scientific base for the programs and policies developed by community organizations, while Community Advisory Board members provide a practical perspective on community priorities, insight about potential collaborations, and input about UW HPRC research, practice, and program implementation.

Thank you to the dedicated members of our Community Advisory Board!
