Community Advisory Board
The College of Nursing established the Community Advisory Board (CAB) in 2003 with the mission “to promote mutual understanding and cooperation in working toward improved health for community members.” The board has a special focus on health disparities and advises university-wide researchers on matters of interest to the broader community.
Recruitment of CAB members emphasizes diverse ethnic and economic perspectives. The CAB is comprised of volunteer members who live and work in the Central Savannah River Area. They are community lay people, leaders, pastors, valued community health workers and interested professionals.
WHAT WE DO
The CAB is an essential partner in facilitating effective community engagement and achieving Augusta University’s broad research mission. Through bi-monthly meetings CAB members facilitate community-based research by providing guidance, feedback and endorsement of planned projects. As well-informed advisors, CAB members routinely provide their views and opinions regarding proposed community-based projects and often influence decisions that impact the broader community.
About the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University
The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) is the flagship medical school of the University System of Georgia, the state’s only public medical school, and one of the top 5 largest medical schools in the United States. Founded nearly 200 years ago in 1828 as the nation’s fifth public medical school, the third medical school in the Southeast and the thirteenth in the nation, MCG has risen to its current role optimizing health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery, and service. The Medical College of Georgia educational experience is anchored by the main campus in Augusta, as well as three regional clinical campuses for third-and fourth-year students and a second four-year campus in Athens, Georgia in partnership with the University of Georgia. The state’s medical school also offers clinical training in more than 200 sites across the state providing students experience in the full spectrum of medicine, from tertiary/quaternary care hospitals to small-town solo practices. MCG and its teaching hospitals provide postgraduate education to nearly 500 residents in 44 different programs. More than 51 percent of MCG graduates remain in Georgia to practice, well above the average retention rate of 39 percent. In 2016 MCG graduated more than twice the number of physicians going into primary care and core specialties – like family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency medicine, and general surgery – than any other medical school in the state of Georgia.

Georgia’s second-oldest and second-largest city, Augusta, is situated on the southern banks of the storied Savannah River. Serving as a halfway point between the Appalachian Mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Augusta is a thriving community built on a solid foundation of local pride and artistic eccentricity.
A timeless locale, a visit to Augusta is a life-altering lesson in Southern hospitality. While other places have undergone cultural revolutions, Augusta underwent a cultural evolution instead, trading big city lights and loud, busy streets for cold sweet tea and a shore-side view of the Savannah River. Downtown, locally owned shops and restaurants mingle in the shade of memorable hangouts, and state-of-the-art galleries beckon artists, lovers, thinkers and dreamers alike to the South's "Garden City."
Augusta is so much more than just a cozy place to live. Spearheaded by the next generation of musicians, foodies, artists and go-getters, the old city comes to life at night, offering live music, theater shows and a wealth of hole-in-the-wall eateries built to please. In addition to serving as a haven of technology and the arts, Augusta is also home to some of the nation's most beautiful lakes and trails, offering year-round outdoor adventures.
Sporting life is synonymous with the Augusta name, and the city proper is home to a number of professional baseball, roller derby and rugby teams. Several annual sporting events take place in and around Augusta, including the Ironman 70.3 Augusta triathlon, the Augusta Futurity and the always exciting Augusta Southern Nationals, dubbed by those in the know as the "World's Richest Drag Boat Race."
