Equal Health Opportunity Committee (EHOC)
Most members of this committee are individuals representative of groups often discriminated against in our society and its health system. The committee addresses affirmative action issues in the public health community. Emphasis is placed on issues impacting racial/ethnic/cultural minorities. EHOC recommendations on specific issues are given heavy weight in the Executive Board's decisions. EHOC meets by conference call on a monthly basis and during the Annual Meeting for which meeting expenses are not covered. The term for EHOC members is three years.
