"Public members play a vital role in ensuring the best interests of Saskatchewan residents are represented on these health councils," Health Minister Don McMorris said. "We are looking for people who want to make a difference, people who are motivated to share their voice and expertise, putting the interests of patients first."

Some self-regulating health professional associations include the Saskatchewan College of Pharmacists, the Saskatchewan Dental Hygienists' Association, the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists and many others.
