UHP Community Advisory Council (CAC)

The UHP Community Advisory Council is another success component of the Program. The University and UHP continue to be advised by key community leaders representing a variety of community agencies and organizations. The membership brings constructive recommendations to the Council’s meetings and helps disseminate information about the UHP’s programs to students and partners in the community. The Council, as a group, has been receptive to new ideas and innovative program strategies; and it has adapted to new concepts appropriate to the ever-changing environment of health professions education. The council has been chaired by Dr. Linda Murray, a local physician an alum of the UIC College of Medicine and by Dr. George R. Smith Jr, a faculty at Chicago State University and Alum of the UIC School of Public Health. Their service and dedication have contributed greatly to the council’s effectiveness.
