LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska health officials are seeking members to serve on several professional health care boards.

The State Board of Health says those interested in serving on a board can obtain an application by contacting the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services' Division of Public Health.

Those boards having vacancies include the boards of Alcohol and Drug Counseling; Massage Therapy; Medicine and Surgery; Nursing; and Occupational Therapy.

The slots are unpaid, but do include some stipends for travel, meals and other expenses.

Professional boards are responsible for granting license privileges to health care providers. Full terms are five years. Most run through Nov. 30, 2023, but there are currently some vacant partial terms.
