Chicago, Ill. (January 24, 2013) - As part of its on-going community engagement efforts, Howard Brown Health Center (HBHC) is actively seeking community members to support the long-term strategic mission of the organization by becoming members of the recently reconfigured Community Advisory Board (CAB).

HBHC will rely on the CAB to provide input and recommendations on the effectiveness of service delivery, program and service offerings, and overall community engagement activities. "Our sole purpose for re-establishing this important group of members from our community is to create another opportunity for clients to provide direct feedback to us regarding their experience and perspective on the care and services we provide at HBHC," says Karma Israelsen, interim president and CEO, Howard Brown Health Center.

In addition to providing programmatic and service feedback to the organization, two members of the CAB will serve as representatives on the HBHC Board of Directors. Israelsen added, "As a community-based health care organization, it's vital that we hear from those we serve, to improve our service and their customer experience. "

HCHB seeks to recruit a diverse mix of HBHC's clients who will be instrumental in ensuring that the needs of those who receive services are represented as HBHC looks to expand services to meet community needs. The CAB will consist of 7-15 individuals reflecting the diversity in age, gender, gender-identity, sexual orientation, HIV status, income level and race/ethnicity.

HBHC has outlined minimum eligibility criteria and terms of service for those interested in participating. To be eligible to join the CAB, interested parties must:

-Have received services from HBHC on a regular basis within the last two years (medical, therapy, case management, or STI/STD testing);

-Commit to attend a monthly CAB meeting.

CAB members will serve a one or two-year term, with the option to submit an application to serve additional terms in the future.

Applications to join HBHC's CAB are available at www.howardbrown.org/CAB. Applicants must submit their completed application by Friday, February 22, 2013. The electronic application can be completed on-line or can be downloaded and dropped off at HBHC's Sheridan Road location at 4025 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood.
