Deepest Appreciation

We are grateful for the support and contributions of our Community Advisory Board (CAB) members and their respective organizations and our Promotora Advisory Board

CAB members and the Promotora Advisors are core members of the TWS Learning Community and help guide the unfolding of the TWS work. They have provided invaluable insights and recommendations throughout every aspect of the NIH study (Phase I & II). They assisted in the planning activities, designing and testing the data collection instruments, as well as supporting study logisitics and participant recruitment. They also helped interpret the findings and formulate recommendations and 'next steps.'

Settings represented

Community-based organizations, federal community health centers, state health departments, public safety net providers, academic, and hospital-based programs. 

Shared objectives

  • Strengthen community-building, and creative public-private partnerships
  • Foster innovative education and technology applications for the promotion of health, equity, and social justice.

Phase I Promotora Community Advisory Board

We want to thank the 22 promotoras who also served as members of our Community Advisory Board in Phase I and El Pueblo, Inc. for their support and coordination efforts.* 

 * Due to time constraints and considerations related to cultural and language differences, we convened 2 'CAB' meetings in the community, in Spanish, with the promotoras. The promotoras' input was summarized, translated into English, and shared with the other CAB and research team members.
A special thank you!

Piedmont Health Services, Inc., a local, non-profit organization in Carrboro, NC that operates 6 community health centers, hosts our Community Advisory Board meetings.
