Sheps Center Advisory Board

Sheps leadership/management is closely advised by the Sheps Center Advisory Board.  The Advisory Board has approximately 20 members, composed of various university department chairs, other senior leaders across the UNC campus, and stakeholders and experts from outside the University.  The members represent the five health science schools (medicine, nursing, public health, dentistry, pharmacy)  and provide advice on Sheps Center strategy and emerging issues in health services research and state and federal health policy.  Furthermore, they help recruit and select Sheps Center Research Fellows. The Board meets three times a year and provides a forum for exchange of topics in health services research.
