The Council currently has openings for 14 additional members, comprised of consumers, patients, and clients only. The Council oversees operations, budgets, and quality measures at the Health Centers clinics throughout the county. Per federal requirements, the Council must be comprised of a majority of patient members, therefore current patients (or their guardians) will be given priority to join the Council to maintain compliance.

Note: Due to COVID-19, meetings are held in a virtual format until further notice.
Council members should be interested in improving the quality of care and patient experience in the Health Centers. They are not required to have expertise in healthcare.

Individuals who represent all geographic areas and demographics are highly valued by the Council.
