Our Board

NHC Board of Directors

As a designated Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Oregon, our Board of Directors seek diverse representatives to provide valuable input around access to healthcare.

We value the concerns of the Portland-area communities, and we commit to improving health care issues where our patients live.
