Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette has a new chair, small business owner and health care practitioner (PAALF Cohort I Alumni) Sita Symonette, the first African American woman to lead the board in its 54 year history.

Symonette, the operator of Black Pearl Acupuncture in downtown Portland, was serving as a board member for the reproductive health center since 2012 and vice chair since 2015, when the board last month elected her to lead the nonprofit’s governing panel.
