RHC Provider Services Advisory Board members meet monthly to provide direct input to the RHC’s work. Provider Services Advisory Board members are community providers who 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 community members, organizations, and individuals utilizing the St. Louis safety net.
