Board Appoints Interim Director
Feb. 11| Clark Anderson has been appointed as the interim Executive Director of EHSC during the time it takes to recruit a permanent replacement for Doris Towery who recently resigned to take another position.
Originally working as a researcher and teacher in sociobiology, Clark switched to a career in health care management and planning, working most recently as the Executive Director of the South Coast Health Alliance before retiring due largely to his severe and progressive hearing loss. Since getting bilateral cochlear implants he is able to assume the responsibilities at the Center and has come full circle from being a client at the Center to serving as the Interim Director.
The Board of Directors is currently engaged in a nation wide search for a permanent replacement and hopes to complete the process in 60-90 days.
