LAS VEGAS (AP) - The chief health officer in southern Nevada is being called before the district board for a public hearing about what the chairwoman calls "issues of management."
Southern Nevada Health District officials aren't providing details in advance of Thursday's hearing involving Dr. Lawrence Sands.
Sands says in a written statement that he doesn't know what the meeting's about.
Board Chairwoman Chris Giunchigliani says the agenda title sounds worse than it is.
A closed-door discussion also is scheduled about health district personnel administrator, Angus MacEachern.
Sands has been the health district chief executive since March 2007. He earns $225,000 per year overseeing more than 500 employees.
The district is investigating a hepatitis C outbreak led to the biggest public health notification in U.S. history last February.
