After more than a year without a permanent health officer in Montgomery County, the county council has confirmed Dr. Kisha Davis to the position.
The council appointed Davis during a meeting Tuesday. She is a family physician and county native who went to Quince Orchard High School. Most recently, she served as vice president of health equity for Bethesda-based Aledade.
Davis is being appointed at a salary of $200,000, according to county documents.
Dr. James Bridgers was Acting Health Officer after Dr. Travis Gayles, the county’s previous health officer, resigned last September.
