Carolinas HealthCare System

A Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) is a legislative group representing trauma care providers and the community, affiliated with a Level I or II trauma center. It provides regional planning, development, implementation and evaluation of a coordinated trauma system.

A hospital may choose to join more than one RAC; if so, however, that hospital is required to designate a primary RAC.
