Governing Council

In addition to the Board of Health, the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center maintains a Community Health Center Governing Council.

The Governing Council oversees planning and direction of operations for the Community Health Center. To ensure a community voice in the direction of the Center, a majority of Council members are users of the Center’s services.
