Employee Impact: Making Health Care More Equitable for the African American/Black Communities of Portland (CAMBIA)

 

February 2, 2021

This post is part of a series that highlights Cambia’s unique Board Placement program, which works to match company employees with nonprofit organizations looking to grow their board of directors. A key part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility approach to giving, the board placement program has become one of the most impactful ways Cambia strengthens local communities and supports employees in their own volunteerism.

North by Northeast Community Health Center (NxNE) is the only medical clinic in Oregon devoted to African American/Black health. They exist to improve health outcomes and advance health equity by offering primary care services and health education and promotion focused on the African American/Black community. For Kilaa Slaughter-Scott, Cambia Project Manager and NxNE board member, the opportunity to help make health care more equitable and accessible to the people and families in her hometown neighborhood is driven by her love of community and commitment to service.
