PG Council to focus on health Monday July 9th

On Monday the Prince George’s County Council will be the Board of Health for most of the day. Starting at 10AM the body will meet as the council for a public hearing on Executive Rushern Baker’s nominee to be the next Health Officer. Dr. Pamela Creekmur has been serving as Acting Health Officer since Baker replaced the former head who was appointed under Jack Johnson earlier this year. That hearing will take place at the County Administrative Building in Upper Marlboro.

Individuals wishing to testify will need to sign up with the Council Clerk before the hearing.

Later that same day Dr. Creekmur will be joined by two of her deputies Dr. Ernest Carter and Elana Butler for a town hall on health in the county. The town hall will be moderated by Dr. Joseph Wright, Senior Vice President of Children’s National Medical Center. Built as a “comprehensive community conversation about the state of healthcare in Prince George’s County,” the trio of health officers will be joined by Neil Moore, President/CEO of Dimensions Health Care and Dr. Carnell Cooper, the Chief Medical Officer for Dimensions. Dimensions is the system that operates the Prince George’s Health Care centers.

This event will take place on Monday July 9th at 7PM at Harmony Hall in Fort Washington.
