Health board seeking volunteer
An expiration in April of the term of one of the five members on the Mesa County Board of Health has the county soliciting applications for people interested in serving on the board.
The board — which sets public health policies and works closely with the county’s public health director — also advises the Board of County Commissioners “to ensure that appropriate and necessary efforts are in place so that public health policies are being addressed,” according to a county press release.
The Board of Health formally meets once a month, on each fourth Thursday, with additional meetings as needed. Terms are for five years, and the county lays out two prerequisites for candidates: a working knowledge or interest in the field of public health and the willingness to work as part of a public health team.
The next member of the five-member board will fill the seat of Dr. Don Coleman, whose term expired last month.
The current president of the board is Dr. John Rodwick, a psychologist and executive coach who is also a former university dean and college vice president.
The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on May 15. An application form can be downloaded on the county’s website at http://www.mesacounty.us. Under the Administration department tab, click “Volunteer.”
