The UCLA CFAR CAB’s goal is to engage HIV/AIDS community-based advocates from the greater Los Angeles area to learn about the latest in HIV/AIDS research, provide feedback to presenting researchers, and to disseminate new research findings to broader community networks. Successful CAB applicants must commit to attending quarterly meetings. We are seeking CAB members who meet one or more of the following qualifications:

  • Current/past research participant
