The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck, as its new executive director, effective February 10.
NACCHO’s mission is to be a leader, partner, catalyst, and voice with local health departments working towards a vision of health, equity, and security for all people in their communities.
“Dr. Hasbrouck’s experience working at all levels of governmental public health practice along with credentials in public health and medicine are especially appropriate at a time when the public health and health care sectors are transforming in response to political, economic, and social pressures,” said Dr. Georgia Heise, NACCHO’s president. “NACCHO’s continuing emphasis on assuring and representing local and foundational governmental public health capacity and services remains in good hands.”
Dr. Hasbrouck was most recently the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Illinois has about 100 local governmental public health departments that range from among the nation’s largest to some of the smallest in size.
Dr. Hasbrouck is currently a clinical associate professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health. He received his Masters in Public Health from the University of California-Berkeley.
