The current focus of the Commission is on health equity, maternal and child health, and chronic disease prevention.
 
Since1853, the Board of Supervisors has encouraged citizen involvement and expertise to assist the Board in serving the community. Boards/Commissions were established to help the Board deal with the many and varied duties and responsibilities of local county government. These Board/Commissions are created by State or Federal law, County ordinance or by action of the Board of Supervisors and provide forums for citizen input and accessibility to county government. It is the intent of the law that their actions be taken openly and that their deliberations be conducted openly.  The Board relies on these groups to advise them on a wide-range of issues affecting their constituencies, and to assure they are responsive to community needs.
