Mendocino County deputy health officer to advise state on health equity

Mendocino County announced that County Deputy Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan has been appointed co-chair of the Health Equity Committee for the California Conference of Local Health Officers, or CCLHO.

The CCLHO advises the California Department of Public Health, as well as other state health entities on all public health matters.

“I am delighted and honored to be appointed to such an important committee,” said Dr. Doohan. “It is my goal to ensure that health equity is strongly represented in state public health policies.”

“To have someone who has Mendocino County’s best interests at heart in this role gives our county a special opportunity to have our voice heard at the state level,” said Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren. “Moreover, Dr. Doohan's strong commitment to equity, proven here in Mendocino County, will now benefit all of California.”

Through this new appointment, Dr. Doohan will be able to bring the needs and perspectives of rural counties forward.

She will continue her long-standing advocacy and support of health equity throughout California with an awareness for the diversity of needs of counties such as Mendocino.

Additionally, she will share these differences with state health officials, which ultimately can affect each and every resident of rural counties throughout the state in supporting access to medical care.
