James Burdine, Dr.P.H., Interim Dean of the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural 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.

“I look forward to meeting with you and having the benefit of your expertise and experience in advising me and the department on public health funding and policy issues in Texas,” states David Lakey, M.D., DSHS commissioner.

The committee will make recommendations on various issues relating to local health entities (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.

“I am very pleased to have the opportunity to serve the state and represent the school on this committee,” says Dr. Burdine.
