The Los Medanos Health Advisory Committee was established by the Board of Supervisors in July 2018 as part of plan to dissolve the Los Medanos Community Healthcare District, increasing funding available for healthcare programming in the Pittsburg/Bay Point areas.
The Committee has been charged with development of an area health plan to determine specific health needs of the community, identify priorities to address those needs and facilitate a request for proposals process to make funding recommendations for health programs in the community to the Board of Supervisors. The Committee includes representatives from the local community and medical practitioners, making this a unique opportunity for collaboration. It is anticipated that the Committee will hold its inaugural meeting in late Spring 2022.
The County is recruiting volunteers to fill one vacancy in the “At Large” seat. The initial term of office is two years, ending on December 31, 2023, at which time the term of office will be three years. The County Board of Supervisors will make the appointment. Residents and those that work in the territory of the District, which is primarily the Pittsburg/Bay Point area, are welcome to apply. This is a volunteer appointment – no stipends or reimbursements are authorized for this Committee.
Application forms can be obtained from the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors by calling (925) 655-2000 or by visiting the County webpage at http://www.contracosta.ca.gov/3418. Applications should be returned to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, County Administration Building, 1025 Escobar St., Martinez, CA 94553 no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, February 18, 2022.
Applicants should plan to be available for public interviews in Martinez on Monday, March 14, 2022.
