The committee includes:

· Bill Altman, Chairman of the Louisville Board of Health

· Bill Wagner, Director of Louisville Family Health Centers

· Richard Clover, Dean of the U of L School of Public Health and Information Sciences

· Dr. Allan Tasman, University of Louisville Department of Psychiatry

· Kellie Watson, Director of Louisville Metro Human Resources, or her designee.

Fischer said he wants a new director named as soon as possible.
