Board of health members sought in Clallam County

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County is seeking volunteers to fill two vacancies on the board of health.

There are openings for a tribal representative, selected by the American Indian health commission via tribal councils’ nominations, and for a consumer of public health who has experienced significant health inequities or as has lived experiences with public health-related programs.

Interested citizens are invited to call the commissioners’ office at 360-417-2233, email [email protected], visit their office in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.. Suite 4, or obtain the application online at
