Community Advisory Board

The Chicago Asthma Consortium's Community Advisory Board is a group of adults with asthma, caregivers of children living with asthma, community educators, community leaders and representatives from patient advocacy organizations concerned about asthma. The Board is designed to be a link between those working in asthma and the community to ensure that the community and patient perspective is included in programs and research targeting asthma.

The Board usually meets quarterly throughout the year, and has provided consultation to 3-6 Chicago-based research projects.

If you have a project you'd like us to evaluate, please contact us at info@chicagoasthma.org with details. Thank you!
