The New York City Health Department’s Division of Disease Control invites interested New Yorkers to apply to be a member of its Transgender, Gender Non‐Conforming, and Non‐Binary (TGNCNB) Community Advisory Board, or TCAB. This advisory board is open to the public with a strong preference for members of the TGNCNB communities. This advisory board will help ensure the Division’s work is representative of all New Yorkers, including persons who identify as TGNCNB.

Scope of Work:
The Division of Disease Control’s mission is to safeguard the health of all New Yorkers through the identification, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases. Members of the TCAB will help inform the Division’s work related to the health of TGNCNB New Yorkers, including:

  • Sexual health and other New York City Health Department clinical services
  • Health marketing campaigns
  • Educational materials
  • Research that focuses on or is inclusive of TGNCNB New Yorkers
  • Best practices for collecting sexual orientation and gender identity client data
  • Trans‐inclusive communications in English and other languages

We are looking for board members with diverse backgrounds and experiences who:

  • Live or work in New York City
  • Are members of the TGNCNB communities or work with these communities
  • Are committed to improving health services for New Yorkers of all gender identities

Board members are required to:

  • Attend one 3‐hour orientation
  • Participate in up to four 3‐hour meetings through June 2019
  • Review documents before meetings
  • Provide feedback and recommendations on one to three topics per meeting

Based on participation and completion of the tasks listed above, board members may receive a stipend of $700 at the 4th meeting.
