JOIN THE UWPR COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD!

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a group of people interested in infectious diseases research issues, such as HIV, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, COVID-19, and MPOX.

 

The CAB’s role is to assist UW Positive Research in the selection and implementation of local and national studies.

 

The CAB acts as a connection to our communities to educate people about participation in research studies -- and to educate our research staff about the issues affecting our communities.

Why Join?

Together, we can make a difference!

  • Help represent the interests of all our communities affected by HIV and other infectious diseases

  • Have a say in what studies will be done and how they will be done

  • Get information regarding new studies and investigational medications

  • Learn about recent results from previous studies and how they might affect our communities

  • Get answers to your questions and concerns about HIV and other infectious disease research
