Northwest Health Foundation named Michael Alexander and Bill Thorndike to its governing board of directors. The Foundation named Reverend W.J. Mark Knutson Chair of the board of directors.

Alexander is President and Chief Executive Officer of Urban League of Portland. Thorndike runs his family business, Medford Fabrication, a custom steel fabrication company. Rev. Knutson serves as pastor of Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland for more than 15 years.

We believe that communities are the best advocates for their own health. Our board of directors represent Oregon's diverse communities, ensuring our programs and partnerships represent this belief.

We are excited to add Michael and Bill's voices in furthering the Foundation's vision of giving every person the opportunity to lead a healthy life.
