The CHEqI Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a committed group of interdisciplinary students determined to increase awareness of health disparities and understand the needs of underserved populations locally and globally. The SAB manages special projects under faculty and community partners as well as lead a university club with the same goals. In addition to individual projects, the SAB also leads a policy and advocacy committee within the club and works with community partners for volunteering opportunities.

Goals include 1) creating and implementing interdisciplinary projects centered around improving health equity, 2) educating students about health disparities, 3) providing community-based experiences in health equity, 4) encouraging opportunities for meaningful faculty mentorship of students, and 5) empowering students to become role models, advocates, and leaders in their profession, and support opportunities to play meaningful roles in the local, state, national, and international recognition of their area of practice or science.
