Because we value participatory research, we engage in a collaborative process involving community, state, and national partners to inform decisions on the overall direction and scope of the Center, as well as on the project level.
Community Advisory Board
The Community Advisory Board partners with the Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center to work to prevent chronic disease among residents and communities in the San Luis Valley by advancing healthy lifestyles. For more information, click here.
Steering Committees are formed to provide leadership to our Core research and other projects. Members represent stakeholders who oversee the research project and contribute to issues such as study design, evaluation, and the communication of findings. Steering Committees develop a Memorandum of Understanding and a vision and mission to guide their work.
Current Project Steering Committees:
- Working Together: Youth and Adults Building Healthy School Environments & Policies
- San Luis Valley Community Health Survey
- Healthy Eaters, Lifelong Movers (HELM)
State & National Advisors
State and National Advisors consist of senior level research and public health professionals who provide guidance on research activities as well as on the overall direction for the Center.
Work Groups are comprised of stakeholders such as community members, researchers, local public health, school administrators, teachers, nurses, state health officials, and others who are working towards a common goal.
