The Greater Richmond Community Advisory Board brings together researchers and community members to engage, understand and support one another. The board assists with the development of community and academic partnerships and ensures that VCU research is meeting the needs of our communities.
The External Advisory Committee of the Wright Center is a diverse team of national leaders in clinical research and community engagement. They meet once a year and evaluate the Wright Center’s work and progress toward its core aims in a structured forum for feedback and oversight.
