Harris County Commissioners Court approved Precinct 4 Commissioner Lesley Briones’ appointee, Dr. Cody Miller Pyke, to the Harris Health System Board of Trustees.
“I am incredibly proud to appoint Dr. Pyke to the Harris Health Board. Not only are they exceptionally qualified for this role, but their perspective as an advocate for health equity and intersectional justice in health care is much needed. Her lived experience as a nonbinary transgender woman will bring a needed perspective to the board, as we strive to create a more equitable and inclusive healthcare system in Harris County. While the Texas Legislature advances harmful legislation targeting the transgender community, we must remain committed to science-based medical practices that prioritize reliable health care for every person in our community. Harris County must be data-driven and strive to be a model of inclusivity, equality, and fairness.” – Commissioner Briones.
