Hamilton County Board of Health completed its annual reorganization at its April 8 meeting, electing Dan Meloy of Colerain Township as president of the board and Elizabeth Kelly, M.D. of Cincinnati as vice president.

The five-member Board of Health is the governing body of Hamilton County Public Health. In addition to Meloy and Kelly, board members include Tracey A. Puthoff, Esq. of Anderson, and two new members: Maxwell J. Miller of Cleves and Eric J. Knapp of Cincinnati.  The Board has the authority to adopt public health rules and regulations, which have the same status as law, and to enact policies within Hamilton County Public Health’s jurisdiction.

“I want to recognize and thank our outgoing board members, Jim Brett and Mark Rippe,” commented Hamilton County Health Commissioner Greg Kesterman. “Both were long-time board members who led us through a pandemic, not to mention seeing our agency double in size and budget while sourcing a new space for our clinical services. We certainly owe them a debt of gratitude,” Kesterman adds.

The Board of Health’s regular meeting schedule through March 2025 will be on the second Monday of each month at 4 p.m. at Hamilton County Public Health, 250 William Howard Taft, Cincinnati, OH 45219. All meetings are open to the public.
