Executive Committee

The Executive Committee meets monthly and represents partnerships through the Aging Network, Health Systems Network, and African American Network.  The Executive Committee functions to prioritize research projects, oversee the selection of community and academic partners for research teams, and problem-solve concerns that arise with partnerships. Primary Investigators present to the committee on an annual basis or more, as needed. In addition, the Executive Committee reviews the evaluation of CAARN and develops any course corrections, if needed.
