Member Interest Groups
Member Interest Groups (MIGs) are designed to mobilize CCPH members for collaborative problem solving and collective action around priority topics of shared interest. Each MIG is chaired by a CCPH member and has a listserv to facilitate communications. MIGs are open only to CCPH members. If you're not yet a member of CCPH, join today! If you’d like to propose a MIG and chair it, contact us today!
Currently, CCPH has a MIG for members who are involved in the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). If you are a CCPH member and would like to join this MIG, click here.
The CCPH-CTSA MIG is an effective mechanism for individuals who are passionate about community engagement in the CTSA program to regularly convene, learn from one another and have their collective voices heard.
