Alberta Health Services has launched a campaign to recruit volunteers to serve three year terms on its 12 Health Advisory Councils.

“Being genuinely responsive to the needs of Albertans is an important focus for Alberta Health Services,” said AHS Board Chair Cathy Roozen. “Health Advisory Council members play a crucial role in connecting us to the people of this province, helping us to better understand the health needs and concerns of local communities.”

Established in 2009, Health Advisory Councils facilitate discussions between community members and AHS.

Albertans over the age of 18 years interested in becoming a council member can complete an application through the AHS website. Deadline is Sept. 5. Additional information is available at www.albertahealthservices.ca/689.asp, by calling 1-877-275-8830 or via email at community. engagement@albertahealthservices.ca

The terms of seven of the 14 members of the David Thompson Health Advisory Council end on Dec. 31st. There are no current members from Sylvan Lake.
