GOSHEN, N.Y. -- After five years, Dr. Eli Avila is out as Orange County Health Commissioner.

Avila announced his resignation Friday to pursue other career opportunities. Dr. Jennifer Roman was appointed Orange County Acting Health Commissioner.

“I am honored that the County Executive has asked me to serve as Acting Health Commissioner,” Dr. Roman said. “I look forward to making sure that the Health Department continues to be at the forefront of preventing and responding to public health issues in Orange County.”

Dr. Roman has worked with the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office since April of 2012. She was named Medical Examiner in July 2015. Dr. Roman completed her fellowship in 2011 at the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and her residency at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System a year earlier. Dr. Roman attended medical school at New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine, graduating in 2006.

She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from St. John’s University in 2002.

A search for Avila’s replacement will begin immediately, the county said.
