Charlene McGee ‘04, deputy refugee health coordinator and program specialist with the Multnomah County Health Department (MCHD), will talk about her work experience, particularly her current role ensuring health care access to Portland’s refugee population, and how her education at OSU helped prepare her for her career.

Charlene joined the MCHD after graduating in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Public Health/Health Promotion and Health Behavior. At the department, she served as the African American Sexual Health Equity Program and HIV/HEP C Health Educator from 2006-2010. She also served as a commissioner for the City of Portland Human Rights Commission and president of the Portland NAACP Branch.

At 24, when she took that position, she was the youngest ever president of an NAACP Branch. She’s also worked for the government of Liberia.

Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Please come out and support Charlene who will be receiving the Young Alumni Award later that evening at the OSU Alumni Association’s Spring Awards Ceremony.
