Councilman Marilyn Scott joined the North Sound ACH to bring the tribal health care delivery system to the organizing group for the region. She has served the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe as an elected official for more than 30 years, and as a tribal delegate on the Northwest Washington Indian Health Board for many years. The tribal health board has served the five tribes of Whatcom and Skagit Counties to improve the health disparities of our tribal communities, and has reorganized to align with North Sound ACH to expand our work to include the eight tribes within the five counties of the North Sound Region.
Marilyn joined to participate in the development and ongoing effort to improve health care access and health care transformation to meet the health care service needs of our citizen population within our region. She has served as an active advocate within local, regional and state health care organization workgroups to have the involvement of the tribal health care delivery system included.
“I am honored to participate on the North Sound Accountable of Health to work in partnership with the organizations, groups and citizens within our region to improves health care delivery access. I truly believe that when we join together as a team we can move the delivery system with great strides into the future. We utilize the teachings of our ancestors, experience the teachings and stories today and share them with our future generation.”
