Community Advisory Council
At FamilyCare Health, we want to make sure we meet the healthcare needs of our members. To reach this goal, we work with our Community Advisory Council. Members and health experts who represent diverse communities join the Community Advisory Council. They help us understand how we can create healthier communities and make lasting change.
Do you have ideas for improving health in your community? We would like to hear from you. Please think about joining our Community Advisory Council.
Note: We offer stipends, reimbursement for transportation and childcare, translation services, and more when applicable.
The Community Advisory Council helps:
- FamilyCare Health achieve its mission, values, and goals
- Share the experiences and needs of the tri-county community
- Advise FamilyCare Health how to help unserved and underserved communities by:
