The RHC Community Advisory Board (CAB) is comprised of regional social services agencies and grassroots organizations. CAB 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. Members meet monthly to provide direct input to the RHC’s work.
