RHC Community Advisory Board members meet monthly to provide direct input to the RHC’s work. Community Advisory Board members identify and provide feedback regarding important regional health issues, act as a sounding board for RHC initiatives, and serve as a vehicle for dissemination of information around important health issues to the broader St. Louis community.
