UW Health population health project manager to be appointed to Dane County Board of Supervisors

July 12, 2018 GMT

Huong Nguyen-Hilfiger, a population health project manager for UW Health, is being nominated to fill a vacancy on the Dane County Board of Supervisors until a spring special election.

Board Chairwoman Sharon Corrigan interviewed the three applicants Tuesday and decided to nominate Nguyen-Hilfiger for the District 14 seat because “her background is relevant to the issues (the district) is facing.”

The County Board will vote on Nguyen-Hilfiger’s nomination at its meeting Thursday.

Adam Smith and Corey Singletary also applied for the appointment to the seat that opened when George Gillis resigned last month.

Nguyen-Hilfiger is a University of Wisconsin graduate with a master’s degree in population health.

Nguyen-Hilfiger would serve on the public protection and judiciary committee in Gillis’ place, Corrigan said.
