Community Advisory Board

The AVRC Community Advisory Board is volunteer community advisory group that provides community members the opportunity to learn about ongoing HIV research and provide valuable feedback on proposed clinical research studies


Our Community Advisory Board was established in 1990, and for over twenty-five years, continues to:

• Represent the interests of our community with regard to research studies.

• Act as a liaison to the community, educating people about participation in Clinicaltrials.

• Provide a forum in which community members can ask the researchers questions directly.


All persons from diverse backgrounds are welcome to join our CAB, regardless of medical history, current health, or HIV status. We especially encourage those who have taken part in Clinicaltrials or who are currently enrolled in one.

Our CAB meetings are usually held the first Monday of every month from 5:30 to 7:00PM. There are often exceptions, so it is generally a good idea to call us first at 619-543-8080. Meetings are held in the conference room at the AVRC (220 Dickinson Street, Suite A, San Diego, CA 92103) on the first floor.

During our CAB meetings, a researcher usually discusses current projects or pending research studies. At the end of the discussion, following questions and answers, CAB members discuss business matters, including educational or fundraising events in the community. A light meal is served.

For more information regarding our CAB, contact Jill Kunkel at 619-543-8080 or
