Past Board Chair
Member since November 2016
Denise Chuckovich joined the Full Circle Health Board of Directors in 2016, shortly after retiring from a career in health care administration and health policy. Denise brings extensive experience with FQHCs including managing primary care clinic sites and school-based health clinics, as well as 10 years’ experience directing state primary care associations (Oregon and Idaho). Towards the end of her career Denise was the deputy director of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, with all health-related programs reporting to her, so she brings an understanding of the relationship between FQHCs, state Medicaid, public health, and behavioral health.
In her role as a Board member, Denise understands the often complex programmatic and funding challenges the FCH faces. Denise cares deeply about the dual teaching and service mission of the FCH and is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of FCH patients.
