Being in the committee allows you the opportunity to provide your input on the best ways to pursue public health at our clinic. It is a great way to practice talking to patients about health issues. The committee will help promote prevention and control of prevalent diseases. They will work in conjunction with the public health officers, Jonah and Elli, on various tasks. These tasks will aid in the presentation of important health issues for the patients. Email Jonahgevercer@gmail.com if you would like to join or learn more.
