Ottumwa Community Advisory Board

Ottumwa Community Advisory Board

The Ottumwa Community Advisory Board (CAB) is made up of local community partners and PRC staff and faculty. The CAB was established in April 2012 and advises the PRC on research projects and activities in their community. These projects and activities are in response to health issues and concerns identified by the CAB and by interviews with community stakeholders.

A copy of our CAB bylaws can be found here. (LINK)
