Tippecanoe County Health Department

Tippecanoe County health officer position open

Mar 11, 2013

Tippecanoe County is looking for a new health officer. Doctor Michael Bohlin has served as the county’s health officer for eight-years.

He told Health Department administrator Ron Cripe in early February that he intended to step down when a replacement is hired. Cripe says Bohlin cited personal and professional obligations as the reason to leave after eight-years on the job.

The seven-member board of health is meeting Wednesday to interview candidates and discuss hiring someone for the position. Cripe says they could appoint someone after their executive session.
