In order to better understand the varying needs of the NSHP community, other members of the community are asked to serve by the Board as an unofficial Advisory Panel. These people may advise on a particular issue or be involved on a broad range of topics. Frequently these people may be former Board members, liasions with other organizations, or can represent a particular constituency within NSHP.
