The Clark County Board of Health is seeking a volunteer for the Public Health Advisory Council.

The open position is for a representative from the Clark County Youth Commission or Clark County Youth House, or a representative of local area high schools or colleges.

The position is for a three-year term which begins when the position is filled.

The council may also provide community forums or establish community task forces as assigned by the board of health.

Public Health promotes healthy communities and environments, health equity, and disease and injury prevention and works with community partners to promote healthier choices; ensure the safety of food and water; reduce environmental waste and contamination; and protect people from disease outbreaks through monitoring, early detection and swift response.
