Recognize National Health Week by adding your voice to the Washington Medical Commission

Washington Medical Commission is committed to healthcare equity and actively working towards addressing health disparities.  

As we recognize April 4-10 for National Public Health Week we are examining critical issues within public health. Such as racism as a public health crisis and the future of the public health workforce.

As we highlight this work, we are sending out another call for public support. We need you!

Help us recognize National Public Health Week issues by providing your insight, life experience, and knowledge as a public commission member.

The WMC is currently accepting applications to fill upcoming vacancies for public commission members.  We are looking for people willing to study the issues and make decisions in the best interest of the public. Our member selection aims to reflect the diversity of the profession and strive to provide an inclusive representation throughout the state.

To get started, apply at  https://govforms.dynamics365portals.us/application-form/ through the office of the Governor. The WMC consists of 21 members appointed by the governor. Three of these are public members.

Public member commissioner membership does not require medical training and position is paid. The most important aspects of an applicant are their life experience to reflect the diverse population of the state. 

You can learn more about the qualifications, participation requirements and pay here: https://wmc.wa.gov/medical-commission-members. (Scroll to the bottom).

If you have any questions about serving on the Commission, please contact Amelia Boyd, Program Manager, by email at amelia.boyd@wmc.wa.gov, or call (360) 918-6336.
