Teneal joined the board in 2021 and most recently served as treasurer, overseeing the organization’s financial management.

“As the chairwoman of the Board of Directors for 26Health, I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the board for placing their confidence in me,” said Teneal. “Together, we will work tirelessly to drive our mission forward to ensure equitable access to healthcare for every individual, regardless of their background.
