Dr. Valerie Arkoosh
COVID-19 Update in Montgomery County

Dr. Valerie Arkoosh serves as Chair of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners. While much of her career has been in medicine and public health, Dr. Arkoosh has substantial experience in dealing with many of the same challenges governments face. 

The Board of Commissioners which serves our county - the third most populous county in Pennsylvania - oversees a budget of $400 million and directs more than 2,400 employees.

As a physician, Dr. Arkoosh has been at the center of the county’s efforts to combat the opioid overdose epidemic, overseeing a multi-pronged, integrated response. She is also uniquely qualified to address the pandemic we have faced for the last year.

Val Arkoosh lives in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, with her husband, Jeff Harbison, and their three children.
