Jay Maddock, Ph.D., Dean of the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health, has been selected to serve as a member of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Public Health Funding and Policy Committee established by Senate Bill 969 in the 82nd Texas Legislative Session.

“We are privileged to have the benefit of Dr. Maddock’s expertise and experience in advising the department on public health funding and policy issues in Texas,” said Kirk Cole, Interim DSHS Commissioner.

The committee will make recommendations on various issues relating to local health entities, such as local health units, local health departments and public health districts. The recommendations will relate to funding and communications between the entities and DSHS, as well as more general public health policy issues facing the state.
