The Clark County Board of Health is seeking applicants for the Public Health Advisory Council. The open position is for a nurse practicing in Clark County. The three-year term begins Oct. 1 and ends Sept. 30, 2025.

The all-volunteer advisory council meets on the fourth Tuesday of every even month via Zoom. When in-person meetings resume, they will be in the main conference room on the second floor of the Center for Community Health, 1601 E. Fourth Plain Blvd.

The Public Health Advisory Council uses a health equity framework to identify community health needs, and review and recommend public health policies and priorities to address the identified needs. The council may provide community forums or establish community task forces, as assigned by the Board of Health. And the council reviews and makes recommendations to Clark County Public Health and the Board of Health for the annual budget and fees.

To apply, submit a brief letter of interest and résumé to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, PO Box 5000, Vancouver 98666-5000.

Applications can also be emailed to michelle.pfenning@clark.wa.gov.

The application deadline is 5 p.m., Aug. 26.
