Advisory Groups & Coalitions


Community involvement and partnerships are essential to public health. Snohomish Health District has regular community and professional groups that advise us on policy and regulations. We also take the lead in facilitating certain community groups. Finally, we participate in a number of boards and commissions related to public health in Snohomish County
