Clark County seeks dentist, doctor for Public Health Advisory Council

By , Columbian staff writer

The Clark County Board of Health is seeking volunteers for two positions on the Public Health Advisory Council.

One position is for a dentist practicing in Clark County, with the term beginning as soon as it’s filled and ending Sept. 30, 2026. The second position is for a medical doctor practicing in Clark County, with the term beginning Nov. 1 and ending Sept. 30, 2025.

The council typically meets 5:30-7:30 p.m. via Zoom on the fourth Tuesday of each month, and no meeting in December. One meeting each quarter is held in-person at locations across the county.

The advisory council reviews public health needs and makes recommendations to the Board of Health to enhance community health and wellbeing. The council may provide community forums or establish community task forces, as assigned by the board. Additionally, the council reviews and makes recommendations on the annual budget and fees. Over the course of the current terms, members can expect to support Clark County Community Health Improvement Plan priorities, a public health legislative agenda, and more.

To apply, send a brief letter of interest and résumé to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, PO Box 5000, Vancouver 98666-5000 or email to michelle.pfenning@clark.wa.gov.

Send questions via email to PHACAdmin@clark.wa.gov.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m., Oct. 17.
