The Community Assessment Panel (CAP) is a group of engaged health home members of the Sacramento Native American Health Center. Their role is to help improve services at SNAHC by offering their experience, perspectives, and opinions on a range of issues that affect the center. The group will help on certain projects brought to them by staff or they may choose a topic by consensus.

Nine people may participate at any one time. Members are appointed for a one year term.
