The selection of topics is based on needs assessment activities and special initiatives. Workgroup membership is comprised of AETC Program participants as well as other content-area experts.

All workgroup logistics are coordinated by the NRC.

Collaborative membership is comprised of AETC Program participants and outside content experts; however, for the Health Disparities Collaborative, membership is open to anyone with knowledge or interest in addressing the health needs of those in marginalized populations. Members convene via quarterly conference calls.
