Research Advisory Committees

Each state convenes a Research Advisory Committee to advise its state Report. Additionally, when reports are released, Committee members can speak to the connections between the ALICE research and their work, building upon the data to address issues in their community. Members represent a range of organizations including academic institutions, social and human service organizations, hospitals, government agencies, or market researchers. 

National ALICE Advisory Council

The National ALICE Advisory Council convenes corporate and national organizations to elevate ALICE’s voice to a national level.  The Council gives advice, expands the Project and offers solutions to help ALICE. Additionally, these influential organizations provide a network to strengthen and add credibility to the Project.  Members of the Council include: Aetna Foundation, AT&T, Atlantic Health System, Deloitte, Entergy, Johnson & Johnson, KeyBank, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, OneMain Financial, Thrivent Financial Foundation, UPS, and U.S. Venture.
