Consumer Advisory Council
This diverse group of people with arthritis ensures CAN's work is relevant and accessible to people with arthritis. As its name suggests, the council is responsible for articulating to CAN directors, management and members the needs and concerns of people with arthritis as they relate to CAN research initiatives. Council members participate in all of CAN's committees and are involved in the peer-review process for awarding CAN grants.
