She/Her | Medical Director
Employer: North by Northeast Community Health Center
Moved Here from: Torrance, CA on November 2022
Why did you move here?
To become the first Black Medical Director of North by Northeast Community Health Center (NxNE), the only clinic in Oregon that is devoted to Black Health. I moved November 2021* (I did not see an option to select 2021 above)
What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?
I would like our community to support our health center by referring more Black people who are in need of receiving culturally competent primary care from a provider who looks like them. We only see adult patients (age 18+) who are covered by OHP (Oregon Health Plan)/Medicaid at this time. We do not accept commercial insurance at this time.
What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?
I would like to connect with mental health providers, local community-based organizations working to address social determinants of health (nutrition, transportation to health visits, anti-racism work, etc.)
