Community Advisory Board (CAB)

The Community Advisory Board (CAB)  meets quarterly to advise on relevant and future directions of BCC research, dissemination of evidence from ongoing research activities, and policy recommendations. 

Specifically, the CAB sets out to:

  1. Make recommendations that will enhance BCC research in our catchment area (Nebraska)
  2. Identify, recommend, and assist in implementing initiatives that address barriers experienced by patients, referring physicians, and other referral services (with a focus on addressing the needs of underserved communities and diverse populations across Nebraska)
  3. Foster access to the services that will reduce cancer disparities through improved communication among community members and physicians, as well as clinicians, administrators, and researchers
  4. Foster high-quality research that informs state cancer policies.

This 21-member association reflects diverse populations and communities from across the catchment area, including Native American/Indian tribes, African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, as well as urban and – notably – rural communities. The CAB is also represented by the state cancer consortium, state health department, cancer advocacy groups, as well as health care providers.
