External Advisory Committee

The EAC is an essential asset to the Principal Investigator and Steering Committee that brings together experts working within clinical and translational-related fields (biomedical informatics, biostatistics, aging, community engagement, and telehealth) from institutions located throughout the country. 

This committee convenes to discuss progress and potential problems related to program development, pilot grant outcomes, training and professional development opportunities, and other relevant network aims.
