To qualify, members must be or have been a primary caregiver to a child who is or has been cared for at Comer Children's. They also must have the ability to support the mission of the hospital, participate in at least one subcommittee, and represent the views of other families along with their own positions in an understandable and meaningful way.
Hospital staff typically recruits new members of the Family Advisory Board, and sometimes families volunteer to serve. Board members are selected to ensure that the board includes a broad range of families with children of many ages and past medical histories. This is done in order to have a broad sampling of diverse family experiences. » Download the application (PDF).
