Redwoods Rural Health Center is excited to include new community members in the healthcare organization decision making process. Just like southern Humboldt, the health center itself is expanding and we want to add board members who represent our diverse community and patient population.
The Board of Directors oversees the organization’s budget and policies so that our health center can continue to grow. Board members are also representatives of our amazing community, providing guidance and direction to the team of providers and staff who work to improve the health of our community. It’s a very positive experience.
Inclusivity is the name of the game. If you are a parent, we would love your input about healthcare. If you are under the age of 18, we would love your input about healthcare. If you are a male, we would love your input about healthcare because at the present time most of our board members are women. If you have small business experience, we would love your input about healthcare. If you feel strongly about steering the future of healthcare in our community, please consider joining the Redwoods Rural Health Center Board of Directors.
Our Board of Directors is creating a new board member training program to mentor anyone who wants to learn about healthcare oversight. If you are interested in becoming a Redwoods Rural board member, please start by attending one of our monthly meetings at RRHC. Monthly board meetings start at 3:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Those interested in serving on the Board have until Nov. 20 to complete a membership form and until December 13, 2017 to submit their intent to run and ballot statement. Now’s the time to get involved in the future of healthcare at the local level, thank you for taking the time to learn more about Redwoods Rural Health Center. www.surveymonkey.com/r/RRHCMember2017
