Community Advisory Council

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) serves as a resource to the VCU Health Hub at 25th to nurture and support programming. It is comprised of community neighbors, community and faith-based leaders, and VCU/VCUHS faculty, staff, and students.

CAC members will fulfill a liaison role by providing a link between programming and the neighborhoods/organizations/circle of influence they represent. They keep their family, friends, neighbors, and affiliated organizations informed of programming’s progress and current activities. By virtue of their connection to various community neighborhoods and organizations, CAC members will also be in a good position to help the VCU Health Hub at 25th network in the community.
