ACRIA is forming a Research Community Advisory Board (CAB) to bring the perspective
of people with HIV and AIDS into the development and execution of our

As a CAB member, you will meet regularly with research staff, review program materials, and help us identify
For more information about this new CAB, please call David Ward at (212) 924-3934, ext. 125.
