Board of Health Contact Information

It is very important to the communication of the Indiana Association of Local Boards of Health to have up-to-date, accurate contact information (emails, addresses and phone numbers) for all board of health members in Indiana. This allows the Association to send information on current topics and upcoming trainings to board members in a timely fashion. Please take a minute to review the information sharing policy and fill out the board of health information sheet and send it to InALBOH.
