The Patient Advisory Board (PAB) represents the voice of patients. Leading from lived experience, all members have navigated the health care system without insurance, under Medicaid coverage, or through the Gateway to Better Health Program. This team identifies and defines barriers within the health care safety net, provides input on the community impact of regional health care issues, and acts as a sounding board for RHC initiatives. The Patient Advisory Board members meet monthly to advise and shape the RHC’s work.
