Healthier Princeton Advisory Board

The Advisory Board to Healthier Princeton is a permanent standing committee of the University composed of students, faculty, alumni, members of the administrative and biweekly staffs, and professionals in the field of preventive health. The board meets twice a year, in the spring and the fall, and provides advice not only on the Healthier Princeton program, but on other initiatives proposed by the task force that would benefit from continuing review.
