The 13-member CAC serves as a liaison between Missouri’s communities and the MFH Board of Directors. CAC representatives gather community input on health issues and helps ensure the Board has a clear understanding of how its grants are impacting the communities and what health concerns need to be addressed. This information helps the Board with its strategic planning and in awarding grants; placing special focus on programs for the uninsured, underinsured and underserved.
