Our program is fortunate to have a local Community Advisory Board (CAB) composed of men and women who form an important link between the researchers, the volunteers and the community at large. Working with the staff, CAB members help us to keep the consent forms in terms that are scientifically accurate and in language that non-medical people can understand. Its input into recruitment and retention of volunteers is a major contribution to the vaccine effort.
The CAB meets at 5:30 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the fifth floor conference room at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks located at 719 Thompson Lane, Nashville, TN 37204.
