Advisory Group

The Center’s Advisory Group was convened to keep the Center informed about issues, needs, opportunities, and changes that are occurring in the practice environment, especially those that relate to cross-jurisdictional sharing. The individuals who comprise the Center’s Advisory Group were chosen based on their professional expertise and current knowledge and perspective regarding local public health infrastructure, including cross-jurisdictional sharing. They serve on an individual basis instead of as representatives of their professional organizations. The Advisory Group meets once a year in conjunction with the Center’s national meeting and is also convened periodically via conference call or web conferencing.
