Academic-Community Partnerships Advisory Board

Creating solutions for a healthier community necessitates strong partnerships between researchers and community stakeholders. The North Texas region is rich in community assets, but like most urban areas, struggles to ensure the health and well being of all residents. Re-envisioned in 2017, the Academic Community Partnerships Advisory Board brings together community members and UNTHSC faculty, staff and students to promote effective partnerships that result in a healthier community.

The School of Public Health has a long history of community involvement through a variety of advisory groups. The new Academic Community Partnerships Advisory Board will combine the functions of prior boards and further align the schools education, research and service goals.
