Women's cancer prevention board seeks new members

The Women’s Wellness Connection (WWC) Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (BCCSP) Advisory Board is requesting applications to fill two Board vacancies starting in July 2016. Applicants that possess one or more of the following qualifications will be strongly considered:
 A representative with a rural perspective
 A representative with knowledge regarding Medicaid and/or private health insurance, patient navigation and/or the Affordable Care Act
 A representative from the LGBT community
 WWC consumer
 A representative with knowledge/experience in cardiovascular disease screening and control
 A representative with a background with hard to reach women

Current board members will evaluate and recommend new members based on review of
applications. The Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and
Environment appoints the new members. Employees of WWC-funded agencies are generally not eligible to serve on the Board due to a potential conflict of interest. 

Newly selected Board members will serve three-year terms. The WWC BCCSP Advisory Board meets quarterly for three hours. Members of the Advisory Board serve without compensation but transportation and travel costs are reimbursed.

All applicants must submit a completed application with their resume via email to Emily.Kinsella@state.co.us. by 5 p.m. MST March 16, 2016.
