Recruiting Consumer Board Members
One of the hallmarks of the Federally Qualified Health Centers nationwide is the consumer board requirement which states that every health center must be governed by a community board composed of a majority of health center patients who represent the population served. For health centers, it is critical to have consumer representation on the board.
The Migrant Clinicians Network and MHP Salud created this free resource to recommend strategies for increasing clinician involvement in consumer board member recruitment. Included is a template for a recruitment poster to hang in your clinic.
MHP Salud has over 35 years of experience implementing CHW programs and training organizations looking to start and/or strengthen their own CHW programs. Visit our CHW Training & Consulting Services page to learn more about how we can help.
