Stakeholder Advisory Board

The CEC receives insight and direction from a Stakeholder Advisory Board which is comprised of members from the CEC's target audiences (community members, health care professionals, and policy makers). The SAB is essential to the CEC as it 

  1. Identifies areas where CEG science can be applied to local and regional environmental health concerns.
  2. Provides recommendations for new public health policy and implementation strategies based on CEG research, community needs, and expertise from public health professionals.
  3. Determines the best mechanisms to provide education and outreach to each target community.
