The Multnomah County Public Health Advisory Board (MC-PHAB) consists of 15-17 members who advise the Health Department director and Public Health Division director on strategic priorities and emerging issues.
The board provides broad stakeholder input from a variety of community sectors on work related to reducing disparities and improving population health in Multnomah County. Members are generally oriented to public health, and are familiar with the Health Department’s public health services and functions.
The board meets every month on the third Wednesday from 4:30-6pm. Meetings are open to the public.

- Business leaders
- Members are appointed to 3-year terms beginning in August, and can serve no more than 2 successive terms.
