Health Advisory Council

Health is a priority for North San Diego Business Chamber as it plays an important role in shaping the region’s economy. The Health Advisory Council strives to be the catalyst that connects business and health.

The Council works with topic experts, public authorities, community leaders, Chamber Members, and other organizations to educate San Diego businesses about regional health care issues that impact their bottom line and workforce productivity.

Advisory Council Members are responsible for discussing and deciding, by vote, the goals, activities, and strategies that the Chamber uses to deliver up-to-date, health-related information to enhance the quality of life for San Diegans.

All Chamber Members and their employees are invited to join the meetings and participate in the discussion.
