Health agency seeking members for commission

Posted 8/20/12

PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Department of Health is seeking 10 individuals to sit on its new Health Advocacy and Equity Commission, which will advise Dr. Michael Fine, director of the agency, and other state departments, on issues of racial, ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic health disparities.

“It is essential that diverse voices are heard in the development of health policy,” said Fine. “This commission will play a key role in developing and facilitating a comprehensive health-equity plan that addresses the social determinants of public health.”

Commissioners will serve a three-year term. For more information or to submit a letter of interest and resume, contact Rilwan Feyisitan at rilwan.feyisitan@health.ri.gov. •
