TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Oklahoma State Board of Health is holding its spring meeting at the Cherokee Nation Tribal Complex in Tahlequah on Tuesday, April 8.

The state board meets regularly throughout the year to discuss public health issues and improvement processes. Twice a year, meetings are hosted by local health departments. The Cherokee County Health Department and Cherokee Nation are serving as hosts.

“It’s an honor for the Cherokee Nation to serve as a host for the spring Oklahoma State Board of Health meeting and will allow the tribe to share with state health leaders and other stakeholders the large investments the Cherokee Nation is making in health care infrastructure, access and patient care,” said Connie Davis, executive director of Cherokee Nation Health Services.

At 10 a.m. Tuesday, a meet and greet for state, county and tribal health officials will be held in the tribe’s Tribal Council Chambers. The State Board of Health meeting follows at 11 a.m.

State Board of Health members are appointed by the governor with senate confirmation, and each board member represents a region within the state. Charles Grim, deputy director of Cherokee Nation Health Services, serves as board member for Adair, Sequoyah, Cherokee, Wagoner, Muskogee, Haskell, McIntosh and Okmulgee counties.
