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.
