The NIH HEAL Initiative® established a Collective Board, with rotating members from various HEAL studies, in January 2022 to guide the overall strategy and direction of the HEAL Data Ecosystem. The HEAL Data Ecosystem Collective Board will provide a close connection between Ecosystem activities and the NIH HEAL Initiative research community. The Board is made up of individual HEAL investigators and researchers and is representative of the scientific topic areas and diverse data needs across HEAL.
The Collective Board guides the strategy and direction of the HEAL Data Ecosystem to develop methods and norms, cultivate a culture of sharing, and maximize collaboration to enable translational discoveries directly benefiting patients in the opioid use disorder and pain communities.
Roles and Responsibilities
Provide NIH HEAL Initiative leadership with recommendations and feedback from diverse HEAL research communities.
Escalate issues and opportunities with broad potential impact to the HEAL Data Ecosystem.
Evaluate and disseminate resources developed by the Stewards and Platform.

Collective Board members serve as an invaluable resource to the HEAL Data Ecosystem. Their knowledge and experience will help guide decisions and future directions of the Ecosystem and the NIH HEAL Initiative as a whole.
