Consumer Engagement in Governance 

Consumers have a unique space in governance and advocacy as they can provide their real life experience to guide policy and practices at health centers and in the larger community.  As health centers are required to involve consumers in governance, it is important to consider how to best support and maximize this input.

The National Consumer Advisory Board (NCAB) is network for people with the experience of homelessness who have been clients of Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) projects across the country. The mission of NCAB is to be the vehicle for consumers of HCH projects to become a collaborative voice on national issues.
