Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

Health Services Officer Professional Advisory Committee

PAG Leadership and Contact Information

The HS Category has formed ten Professional Advisory Groups (PAGs) to address discipline-specific professional issues and advise the HS Category and the Chief Professional Officer of the Health Service Officer Category. The PAG functions in a resource and advisory capacity to assist in the development, coordination, training and evaluation of activities related to the specific discipline. Each PAG has bylaws that are approved by the Chief Professional Officer and the HS Category. Officers are encouraged to participate in their PAG. Officers are free to join any PAG, but you’re only able to serve as a voting member in your designated PAG.
