Board of Directors

As a designated Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), our Board of Directors seek diverse representatives to provide valuable input around access to healthcare. We value the concerns facing the Portland-area communities and are committed to improving health care issues facing our patients and the communities in which they live.

Our board is composed of individuals, a majority of whom are being served by the center, who volunteer their time monthly. This majority as a group represent the individuals being served by the center in terms of demographic factors such as race, ethnicity, and sex. The remaining members represent professions providing experience and skills to guide the Board of Directors in delivering continuity and organizational consistency.

Current Board of Directors include:

  • Donalda Dodson, Co-Chair
  • Brittany Marks, Co-Chair
  • Steve Kinder, Treasurer
  • Mary Tanski, Secretary
  • Eric Booth
  • Wayne Schmidt
  • Rudy Mazza
  • Deborah Merrick
  • Amy Tharpe
