Consumer Advisory Council

One of Missouri Health Connection's priorities in the creation of the statewide health network is to empower consumers to take a more active role in their own health care. To help advance this goal, MHC's Consumer Advisory Council helps support and advise on community outreach, communication and public engagement activities.  

The Consumer Advisory Council represents a diverse and dedicated group of leaders and advocates from around the state.
