Mr Yates said current board members included former West Moreton health service CEO Pam Lane, Ipswich City Councillor Cheryl Bromage and prominent members of the Ipswich business community.
Mr Yates said IHF's vision was to have the community become the healthiest in Australia.

The board positions are voluntary and do not offer any compensation.
Mr Yates said the decisions board members were responsible for covered a vast range.
The IHF vision is to make Ipswich and West Moreton and the surrounding regions of the Somerset, Scenic Rim and the Lockyer Valley to be the healthiest community in Australia.
