President-elect Joe Biden has tapped Dr. Jill Jim, executive director of the Navajo Department of Health, to serve on his COVID-19 Advisory Board.

Jim earned her Master of Healthcare Administration from the David Eccles School of Business and her doctorate in Public Health from the University of Utah.
