External Advisory Board

The NWCOHS External Advisory Board serves as an important link to the stakeholders and communities served throughout Region X.

The External Advisory Board regularly consults with NWCOHS program directors about regional needs to address the health and safety impacts of working conditions, and the board provides oversight of the center's effectiveness in achieving center and programmatic goals.
