CAB meets to discuss ways to improve programs and services at Christian Community Health Center on a regular basis.
The Prosumer provides a biannual report to the Board of Directors and meets quarterly with our CEO to provide feedback on ways to improve patient satisfaction and quality of services. Through these avenues, the CAB shares suggestions for improved services with CCHC’s leadership.
New members will be selected through an application process. Potential applicants will submit an application to be screened and interviewed by the Officers and designated CCHC staff. The CCHC CAB will strive to maintain a membership that is diverse, inclusive, and represents the demographics of all and any health-related service (i.e., acute/chronic, preventative, and supportive).
The Community Advisory Board has continued to meet virtually during the pandemic.
In April 2009, Christian Community Health Center established a Community Advisory Board (CAB) with membership of 5 to 13 members from our HIV care programs, chaired by our Prosumer who leads and coordinates CAB meetings. The purpose of the CAB is to provide input and feedback into program planning and represent CCHC at identified community groups. The CAB includes participants from each of CCHC’s programs and unique populations effected by the HIV epidemic. The planning body engages in focus groups, customer satisfaction surveys, and strategic planning, playing an integral role in ensuring that our patients living with HIV are empowered to participate in the design, implementation, and evaluation of CCHC’s Ryan White programs. The CAB assists with community education, outreach efforts, and supports individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
