Community Advisory Board

Members of the Community Advisory Board (CAB) include parents and caregivers of HIV-infected children, HIV health care workers and other interested people in the community. The CAB seeks input and feedback regarding clinic operations and patient's needs that will improve services and research for all HIV-affected patients at Lurie Children's.

The CAB meets six times a year to:

  • Discuss improvements for the program's services
  • Help implement new pediatric, adolescent and perinatal research
  • Review HIV education materials used in the community
  • Assess the effectiveness of Lurie Children's HIV/AIDS program

An adolescent CAB is addressing similar issues that are specific to teens with HIV/AIDS.
