New members have been elected to the board of directors of Affirm, formerly Arizona Family Health Partnership.
Affirm is a 48-year-old non-profit organization working to make sexual and reproductive healthcare accessible to all. As Arizona’s Title X (ten) agency, Affirm prioritizes serving people that have been systematically excluded from receiving care.
New board members elected to three-year terms are:
- Carolyn M. Fuller, ND TREE, Project Director at Native American Connections
- Sarah Corcoran Gorin – community volunteer
- Catherine A. Gouge, MS, MPH, LSSGB – Principal Consultant and CEO at Be Bravely Bold
- Shauna Lee McIsaac, M.D. – physician at McIsaac Consulting
- Charnise Virgil Moore – Southwest Division Director, Corporate Responsibility Officer at CommonSpirit Health/Dignity Health
- Catherine R. Pisani – Manager of Clinical Trials Operations at Phoenix Retina Associates
- Mindy Riesenberg – Director of Marketing and Communications at Grand Canyon Conservancy
Title X is a federally administered grant program that funds Affirm which, in turn, distributes funds to health centers providing low- or no-cost services like birth control, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment, pregnancy testing, counseling and other preventative services. More than 50 Title X-funded health centers across Arizona provide sexual and reproductive healthcare services to an average of 33,000 people annually.
