HAMILTON COUNTY, OHIO – The Hamilton County Public Health District Advisory Council elected Dr. Elizabeth Kelly to the Hamilton County Board of Health at its annual meeting March 12.
Dr. Kelly is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. She currently serves as Director for the Division of General Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UC College of Medicine, where she is also a Professor. She also holds a MS in Epidemiology from Columbia University.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Kelly on the Board of Health,” says Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram. “I have gotten to know Dr. Kelly through her work on reducing infant mortality in Hamilton County. She is extremely competent, passionate about her work and will be a tremendous asset to our Board,” Ingram adds.
Dr. Kelly replaces Tom Chatham, who is leaving the Board after 25 years of service. “Tom leaves behind a legacy of public health program improvement,” Ingram says. “He has been integral in so many of our programs throughout his 25 years and we will miss his strong business acumen and thoughtful leadership.
“We’re fortunate that we are able to replace Tom’s dedication and experience with a Board member of Dr. Kelly’s background,” Ingram adds. “Her medical background and interest in public health policy will help us to advance our mission of educating, serving and protecting our community for a healthier future.”
“I am honored to be working with Commissioner Ingram and Hamilton County Public Health to contribute to its mission of improving population and public health,” Kelly said.
Hamilton County Public Health works to assure the 480,000 citizens living outside the cities of Cincinnati, Norwood and Springdale are safe from disease, injury and contamination.
