Population Health Advisory Committee-San Antonio
The purpose of the Population Health Advisory Committee (PHAC) is to (1) provide science-based, expert advice regarding steps to minimize risk and provide recommendations and (2) to provide guidance regarding mitigation and prevention strategies. The PHAC will use open channels of communication to seek continual engagement and review and will encourage innovation as a means to accomplish goals and address change. It is intended that the PHAC leverage the experiences, expertise, and insight of key individuals positioned to provide guidance and support to the Community Health and Equity Committee, City Council, and the Mayor.
Public health professionals and physicians from various fields were selected to temporarily serve as an all-volunteer Committee. The individuals were selected because of their experience and their ability to set aside individual organizational agendas and plan for the needs of the entire community.
