Community Advisory Board
Community engagement is critical to this study’s success, including the establishment of a Community Advisory Board (CAB). This group is comprised of representatives from communities across Dallas and Tarrant counties. CAB members provide essential input, designed to help:
- Raise awareness of the DFW COVID-19 Prevalence Study among community members and leaders
- Motivate community members to respond positively, if invited to participate
- Show legitimacy of the study through transparency and design of communication tools (website, media communications, recruitment materials, etc.)
- Disseminate interim and final study findings through multiple channels to reach our large and diverse population
