Ottumwa Community Advisory Board

Ottumwa Community Advisory Board

We want to thank the Ottumwa Community Advisory Board (CAB) for all their work over the years with the PRC-RH and their continuing work on sustaining Active Ottumwa in their community. The CAB was established in April 2012 and advised the PRC-RH on research projects and activities in their community. These projects and activities were in response to health issues and concerns identified by the CAB and by interviews with community stakeholders. The CAB continues to meet and advise the Active Ottumwa project, now led by Hy-Vee of Ottumwa.
