The Department coordinates the activities of multiple advisory boards comprised of both on-campus and off-campus practitioners, researchers, health care administrators and providers, and community and state leaders.
The Department of Public Health Sciences' Public Health Advisory Board provides strategic guidance to meet the region's public health workforce development and training needs through an evolving portfolio of courses and programs in public health. The Board is comprised of a range of community development, health care, health promotion, and public health partners from the greater Charlotte metropolitan region, and has been meeting regularly since before 2005.
The Health Administration Advisory Board is comprised of administrators from acute care settings, non-profit agencies, community services, and consulting organizations from the greater Charlotte-Mecklenburg County area. The Board was established in 2007 to guide our Master of Health Administration (MHA) program as it sought its initial accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME). In 2017, we expanded the board's purview, and its membership base, to also encompass the department's new undergraduate program in health systems management (BS HSMT).
