Meet the finalists for medical director

Monday, July 1, 2019 by Tai Moses

After a lengthy recruiting process, Austin Public Health has narrowed its search for a new medical director to several top-drawer finalists. The final candidates are all exceptionally capable individuals and any of them would make an ideal medical director. According to the city’s announcement, the medical director “is responsible for clinical oversight of medically related services provided by the Austin Public Health Department” and “performs the duties of local Health Authority as described in the City Ordinance, County regulations, and State statute (i.e., quarantine, required reporting of infectious diseases, birth and death records).” You can meet the finalists and decide for yourself who would be the best candidate on Tuesday, July 2, from 6-8 p.m at the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center at 808 Nile St.
