Advisory Board

The community advisory board of the Center for Community Engagement and Health Equity (CEHE) ensures a diverse and representative community voice to guide the center’s priorities and programming, especially in terms of research priorities. CEHE administers the advisory board, which is embedded within the Center for Research Engagement’s community steering committee. The committee brings more than 20 years of experience and expertise. At their monthly meetings, the board members—cancer survivors, caregivers, and others affected by cancer in their communities—advise Yale Cancer Center researchers on their new ideas and projects, ranging from a lung cancer screening app to tumor tissue donation, and others. CEHE is dedicated to making sure such invaluable community insights are not just heard but acted on by ready and eager colleagues across the Smilow Cancer Network and Yale Cancer Center to inform and improve cancer care delivery and equity.
