We bid a reluctant but very fond Fish team farewell to Emily York, who is moving on to a new position with the Climate and Health program at the Oregon Health Authority.
Armed with a Master’s degree in Public Health from Portland State University, and a knack for building community partnerships, Emily’s record of accomplishment includes replacing junk food with healthy options in our recreation centers, developing new meal programs to serve hungry kids, and coordinating an unprecedented expansion of the city’s community garden program.
Her passion for sustainability, health, and equity will be missed, but we know she will bring these values to her new role at the State.
Congratulations to our colleague and friend!
