The Texas Health and Human Services Commission executive commissioner will appoint a physician and an attorney licensed to practice in Texas to the panel to serve a term expiring Aug. 31, 2028. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m., May 27.
HHSC will consider applicants' qualifications, background and interest in serving on the panel and will try to choose panel members who represent the diversity of all Texans. For this reason, HHSC considers applicants' ethnicity, gender and geographic location.
