Community Advisory Board
Surge is our communities in Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale Counties coming together to address the HIV epidemic. We need all voices represented – including yours!
We have a community advisory board (CAB) made up of unique individuals and diverse perspectives to ensure our efforts are having a direct impact on the community.
Get involved. Your voice matters. Everyone is welcome.
Our next community advisory board will meet virtually via zoom.
