The Westside Family Health Center in Santa Monica has added two new members to its Board of Directors.
With the appointments of Teresa Angeles and Scott Ramer, the health center’s governing board is now comprised of 10 members.
“I am pleased to have Teresa and Scott be part of Westside Family Health Center’s Board of Directors,” said Peter J. Mackler, chairman of the Board of Directors.
“They each bring experience and commitment to health care and to our community. They expand our board’s depth and knowledge and will serve as excellent governors and ambassadors.”
For Angeles, Westside Family Health Center is a family affair. She first came to the center when she was pregnant with her son and they both continue to receive healthcare from the facility, as does her mother, sister and niece.
“(WFHC) has kept my family very healthy and helped us with a lot of support and information,” she said.
Ramer first came to Westside Family Health Center as a guest at the March board meeting. He is a manager for Price Waterhouse Coopers in their Health Industries Advisory Group, and works mainly with hospitals and physician groups.
“I believe the opportunity to volunteer and serve on the Board of Directors for Westside Family Health Center will allow me to contribute my experiences, knowledge, and leadership skill sets towards achieving the objectives and goals of the organization,” he said.
“This opportunity allows me to have a chance to serve the community in which I live by giving back,” he said.
