OUR COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD

YOU can make a difference!

 

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a group of people interested in HIV treatment research issues.

 

The CAB’s role is to assist the  University of Washington AIDS Clinical Trials Unit (ACTU) in the selection and implementation of studies locally.

 

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?

  • Help represent the interests of all our communities affected by HIV

  • 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 research

Who can join?

People from all walks of life are welcome to every CAB meeting, regardless of medical background, health, or HIV status.

We especially encourage those who have taken part in a clinical trial or are currently enrolled in one to participate in the CAB.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

 

When do we meet?

We met the 4th Tuesday of every month, except for December and July.

Where do we meet?

We meet in the ACTU Conference Room, located on the 2nd Floor of the West Clinic at Harborview Medical Center. Currently we are meeting via Zoom. Check our Facebook page for the meeting info, or send an email to mlouella@uw.edu for more details.
