Patient Advisory Board
Patients are research partners for the RE-POWER project, and they help shape many aspects of the study. Members of the Patient Advisory Board (PAB) live in rural communities throughout Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Each of the PAB members brings the perspective and experience of what it takes to manage one's weight living in the rural Midwest where healthy options and programs are often scarce. They are also experts with a personal understanding of how healthcare professionals can best communicate with patients about weight loss. They genuinely care about the mission of this project and contribute their expertise to help guide the program materials, surveys, provider trainings, and recruitment strategies. They meet with the research team every month, and their insights, opinions and solutions are critically important to the success of the study.
