The Loudoun Health Commission has a critical need for volunteer members interested in helping efforts to improve the health of the community. Anyone interested in serving on the Health Commission is encouraged to visit loudoun.gov/advisory for information on how to apply.
At full capacity, the commission has nine voting members who are appointed by the Board of Supervisors and needs a majority of those members for a quorum. There are currently openings for four members.
“Health Commission members play an important role in advising the Board of Supervisors about public health needs in the county. The commission also provides a forum for health care providers, businesses, government and education leaders to exchange ideas,” said Loudoun County Health Department Director Dr. David Goodfriend. “With the Board’s recent disbanding of the Lyme Disease Commission, the Health Commission will also be taking on the responsibility of increasing awareness about Lyme disease prevention in the county.”
Loudoun County encourages residents to become actively involved in their county government by serving on the advisory boards, commissions and committees that advise the Board of Supervisors on a variety of topics. A comprehensive listing of advisory boards, commissions and committees and current opportunities to serve may be found on the county website at loudoun.gov/advisory.
