Austin City Council and the Travis County Commissioners Court are looking for members of the community to serve on the Austin-Travis County Public Health Commission.
The commission will work to address inequality in health services and health practices for Austin-Travis County residents. The nine members who serve on the commission will research social factors that lead to poorer health for underserved populations. They will also research health practices that lead to better health outcomes for underserved populations.
Commission members will provide an annual report with findings to help address existing gaps, and influence and support investment in the improvement of overall public health programs, projects, regulations, and services within the City and the County government.
Any Austin-Travis County resident who is interested in working on this commission can apply. Applicants must be residents of Travis County. The court and the council are recruiting applicants that are representative of the diversity within Travis County.
