The State Community Health Services Advisory Committee, or SCHSAC, advises the health commissioner and provides guidance on the development, maintenance, financing, and evaluation of community health services in Minnesota. SCHSAC recommendations influence public health policy, guidelines, and practice throughout Minnesota.
Membership consists of one representative from each of Minnesota's community health boards. Members meet quarterly with the health commissioner to discuss public health issues of mutual interest, and in workgroups between SCHSAC meetings to address and respond to critical public health issues.
