We will be hearing from Director Andrew Strong on the County office of Race and Equity, as well as from Kelly O. Elmore, MD on Women’s Health.

Director of Race and Equity Andrew Strong

Strong brings 15 years of experience in local government leadership and community engagement to the role, intended to identify systemic bias within the county government.

Strong spent nine years in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman before settling in San Diego. He joined the county in the human resources department and was promoted into key leadership positions, including chief of staff of the Chief Administrative Office, which implements the policy directives of the board and manages the day-to-day operations of the county.
