Advisory Boards

We are very fortunate to have talented and dedicated individuals who help guide the work of the Center. The external Science Advisory Board is made up of current and past Directors or Core leaders of other National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Core Centers. They attend our annual retreat and take part in an annual meeting to review our progress and make suggestions for new initiatives and improvements. Our Community Engagement Core (CEC) is guided by input from our Community Advisory Board, which is centered around the three main areas of emphasis of our CEC including: Educators, Communication and Community Engagement, and Tribal Work. This board is made up of leaders in the community who represent the various stakeholder groups that the CEC serves.
