EvergreenHealth Seeking Community Advisor Candidates

Volunteers provide counsel to EvergreenHealth Board of Commissioners and Administration

Kirkland, Wash. – EvergreenHealth is now recruiting volunteers for its Community Advisor program, which play a vital role in advancing the health system’s mission to enrich the health and well-being of its community. Community Advisors serve as ambassadors for the organization, helping to shape future services and programs through direct consultation with EvergreenHealth’s administrative leaders.

Community Advisors attend nine educational sessions throughout the year focusing on health care issues that impact the Eastside community and explore the services EvergreenHealth offers to address those issues.

Applications are currently being accepted online or via email through September 17. Applicants will be asked to answer a series of questions about community involvement, professional experience, volunteer experience, communication skills and what’s interesting or challenging about health care delivery.

Board-appointed Community Advisors serve three-year terms beginning in January, with the option to renew after each three-year term and can serve up to nine years. Advisors must be residents of the EvergreenHealth District, which encompasses Bothell, Duvall, Kenmore, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish and Woodinville.

Please submit applications at www.evergreenhealth.com/advisors or by emailing sklizza@evergreenhealth.com.
