Community Advisory Board
Howard Brown Health has multiple Community Advisory Boards to support the breadth of services we provide across our clinic locations. The CABs provide community feedback on Howard Brown’s programs and services and helps Howard Brown staff stay connected to Chicago’s communities.
The North and South Side CABs are currently accepting applications. The CAB accepts application all year round. View and download the CAB Information sheet here! If you have any questions about the North or South Side CAB, please reach out to the CAB Liaison at SarahF@howardbrown.org or 773.388.1600
Our focus areas are:
- Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities
- High blood pressure
Howard Brown is committed to choosing a diverse group of CAB members with different ages, income levels, gender identities, races/ethnicities, sexual orientations, and HIV status. Howard Brown is committed to forming a CAB that includes people who have received healthcare at Howard Brown regularly; this includes medical, therapy, case management or testing services within the last two years.
The CAB meets for two hours, once a month. During the meetings, the CAB will give feedback, react to ideas from staff, and make suggestions that could improve Howard Brown. Possible CAB topics include transgender health services, case management services, support groups, youth services, women’s services, Pride Month activities, HIV/STI testing and outreach, and the Brown Elephant stores.
