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.
