County seeks help in health care policy


Clackamas County commissioners are seeking five volunteers to serve on the county’s Community Health Council. Membership requirements are guided by bylaws and federal regulations.

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.

The council and the Board of County Commissioners are responsible for oversight of a federally funded grant that provides primary care, dental and behavioral health services to residents of the county. Council duties include working closely with staff to review and recommend service priorities for patients, determining program policies and providing fiscal oversight.

Interested individuals who meet the criteria outlined above are asked to complete an application form. Applications may be completed and submitted at clackamas.us/miscapp/application.jsp.

For an application form, contact Citizen Involvement at 503-742-4353. The application deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 17.
