Community Advisory Board

As a MWCCS study participant, you are eligible to participate in the CAB.


Participants of the Chicago-Cook County MWCCS site will be asked to represent the women who are affected by HIV and those who are at risk for HIV. The Chicago-Cook County MWCCS CAB will meet regularly to discuss health-related and study-related topics, while enjoying each other’s fellowship. Two elected Chicago-Cook County MWCCS CAB members will be asked to participate as site representatives at national MWCCS functions. As we go forward to advancing HIV research, we seek to provide a voice to women of the MWCCS.
