Dr. King Holmes, professor and chair of the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington School of Public Health, was one of nine new experts appointed to the National Institute of Health’s Council of Councils. The council is made up of 27 members who provide advice to Dr. James Anderson, NIH director on policies and activities of the Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives.
Council members are asked for advice on recommendations for research on rising public health challenges and emerging scientific opportunities. “Collectively the Council will inform our approach to foster new ideas based on analysis of the science,” Dr. Anderson said. “We will benefit greatly from their diverse perspectives, insight and experience.” Dr. King’s appointment runs through October 31, 2016.
