SANITARIAN ADVISORY COMMITTEE. The Sanitarian Advisory Committee was established in 1965 to assist the State Board of Health in forming rules and regulations for the examining and licensing of professional sanitarians. The committee was composed of five members appointed by the State Board of Health. This program for registering professional sanitarians was administered by the division of sanitary engineering within the Texas Department of Health. In 1972 there were 888 registered sanitarians in Texas. In the 1990s the committee met twice a year and still oversaw the Sanitarian Registration Program, which was administered within the General Sanitation Division of the department.
