Community Advisory Board

NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County has an active Community Advisory Board (CAB) of approximately 17 dedicated community volunteers who reach out to get the views of the community and represent them in the hospital’s decision-making process. They also inform the community about the goals and objectives of the hospital and its health centers.

The CAB General Meeting and its committees are open to the public. The CAB Regular Monthly Meeting are held every 3rd Thursday of the month.

Community Members are encouraged to contact the CAB Liaison to inquire about the scheduled meetings or to address issues and concerns to the CAB.
