Sacramento, California – October 31, 2017 – Britta Guerrero, CEO at Sacramento Native American Health Center (SNAHC), was elected to the Executive Committee and will serve as Vice-Speaker at California Primary Care Association (CPCA). There are 30 voting directors who make up the Board of Directors and each member holds office for three year terms. She has been a board member at CPCA for two years and was elected to the new position by her peers at the Board of Directors meeting this month. Ms. Guerrero is the first Native woman to represent an Urban Indian Health Center on the board and to hold the position. And as a CCUIH member, SNAHC serves as one of the primary Native voices in the greater Sacramento region.

They represent more than 1,200 not-for-profit Community Health Centers and Regional Clinic Associations who provide comprehensive, quality health care services, particularly for low-income, uninsured and underserved Californians who might otherwise not have access to health care. “Representing Urban Indian Health Centers on a statewide policy and advocacy board has been an amazing learning and growth opportunity,” said Ms. Guerrero, “Serving our community and patients is my responsibility. The ability to bring our voices into the room as decisions that affect our health care are made is a honor that I take very seriously.”
