Dr. Johansen to Serve on Public Health Committees

Dr. Anne Johansen was encouraged to serve on two Kittitas County Public Health Department Committees: 1. The BOHAC (Board of Health Advisory Committee), This committee serves to provide community feedback to the Kittitas County Public Health Department and the Kittitas County Board of Health.  2. The newly formed Air Quality Advisory Committee for Ellensburg.  The role is to conduct an assessment to determine the reasons for burning and barriers to burning more efficiently, identify attitudes and beliefs about burning, and determine what actions would decrease air pollutions levels to avoid non-attainment in the future.  The final goal for the project is an educational and outreach component that will reduce air pollution levels.
