Brigham doctor named to Boston health board
By Stephen Smith, Globe staff
Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino today appointed a specialist in women's medical issues and healthcare disparities to the city's health board.
Dr. Paula A. Johnson, chief of the women's health division at Brigham and Women's Hospital, will replace Dr. JudyAnn Bigby on the board of the Boston Public Health Commission. Bigby, who also was a top physician at the Brigham, is the new health secretary in the administration of Governor Deval Patrick.
The commission board approves major public health initiatives in the city, voting in the past, for example, to ban smoking in restaurants and bars. Boston has the nation's oldest public health agency.
