Community Advisory Board

The Community Engagement Advisory Board (CEAB) advises the SYNERGY Executive Committee, providing feedback on SYNERGY's impact in the community and efforts to address community health concerns. The CEAB consists of health professionals, community leaders, and government representatives. It meets quarterly to discuss health-related issues in regional communities, community-academic partnerships, and SYNERGY's success in addressing community health concerns. The Board aims to support collaborative, sustainable, and mutually beneficial research projects, achieved through discussion among academicians and community groups.
