Eagle County Commissioner Jill Ryan has been appointed by Governor John Hickenlooper to the Colorado State Board of Health.

Appointments to the nine-member board are made for four-year terms, with one member from each of the state’s seven congressional districts and two members from the state at large. Ryan’s appointment also fulfills the requirement that one member be a county commissioner.

Jill Ryan

The State Board of Health determines general policies, rules and standards to administer the public health laws of the state, including those related to health care facilities, retail food establishments, X-ray machines, the statewide trauma system, the medical marijuana registry, and reportable conditions such as cancer. The board also awards grants for chronic disease prevention, tobacco use prevention, health disparities and HIV/AIDS.

Ryan has a master’s degree in public health, and has been a director at both the state health department and at Eagle County Government. She was elected as county commissioner in November.
