The Board of Health Appointments Committee will choose a member of the public who lives in Archuleta or La Plata County and has education, experience, or a combination of both in finance or a public health discipline such as environmental health, health education, epidemiology, social and behavioral health, biostatistics, or public health administration. SJBPH is a district public health organization established by a joint resolution between La Plata and Archuleta counties. The resolution also secured a seven-person Board of Health to oversee SJBPH, with one county commissioner from each county serving as an ex-officio voting member.
SJBPH has delivered on its mission to improve public and environmental health in Southwest Colorado. Maternal and child health programs, infectious disease control, health inspections, youth outreach, and water quality testing are just a few of the services provided by SJBPH.
