Our Board

Sawtooth Mountain Clinic is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our board is made up of Cook County community members, most of whom use the clinic for their personal medical services. This ensures that the clinic is connected to the needs of the community and responds to changes in health care law and practice in a way that is appropriate to those who live in and visit Cook County. Please feel free to contact us at board@sawtoothmountainclinic.org.
