In order to achieve a balance and countywide representation on the council, applicants from various geographic areas in the county and various ethnic groups are encouraged to apply. The council meets monthly from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Interested individuals who meet the criteria are asked to complete an application form.

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking five volunteers to serve on the county’s Community Health Council. Membership requirements are guided by council bylaws and federal regulations. At this time, representation is needed from patients/clients served by Clackamas County Community Health’s primary care or behavioral health clinics. Parents and guardians of patients are also eligible for membership.www.clackamas.us/miscapp/application.jsp
