Community Engagement Core: Stakeholder Advocacy Board

The Stakeholder Advocacy Board (SAB) serves to strengthen dialogue and interaction between the M-LEEAD Center and community stakeholders, to ensure understanding by Center researchers of community and policy needs, and to ensure effective dissemination of research in appropriate venues. This group meets quarterly, and is made up of community leaders with extensive experience in collaborative engagement in the development and translation of knowledge, building on community strengths and resources, facilitation of co-learning and capacity building, and dissemination of research findings to all partners.
