On January 17, 2023, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced that it is looking for qualified applicants for two advisory councils addressing long-term care matters – the Long-Term Care Advisory Council (LTCAC) and the IRIS Advisory Committee (IAC). This could be a great opportunity to have a WiHPCA member on one or both councils, particularly the LTCAC. Applications are due to DHS by Friday, February 3, 2023.
According to the DHS website, LTCAC “Members give advice and make recommendations to the DHS Secretary about long-term care policy, programs, and services.” For more information about the council or to apply, go to the LTCAC page on the DHS website.
The DHS website states that “The IAC advises DHS about the IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct) program. IRIS is a self-directed program for adults with disabilities and elderly people. IAC members have knowledge, experience, expertise, and community relationships relevant to this area. They give ideas, opinions, or facts to improve the IRIS program.” For more information about the IRIS Advisory Committee, go to the IAC page on the DHS website. If you are interested in applying, go to the DHS website.
