The WREN Advisory Council serves as a connection between and with primary care practices throughout the state of Wisconsin.

They review study proposals and ideas to provide feedback regarding likely interest among primary care providers and feasibility.  Providing vision and direction to WREN, they help steer the conversation about what matters to primary care practices and the communities they serve.

They represent WREN in their home practices and communities, sharing research, educational and healthcare initiative opportunities with peers and colleagues, encouraging participation.
