CMH is pleased to welcome Durinda Haukap, MS RD, who starts as the director of the CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative this week.

“I am looking forward to climbing to new heights with the CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative team and driving community engagement,” Durinda says.

Prior to joining CMH, Durinda worked as the Vice President of Support Services at Avamere Health Services. She has also worked in other leadership roles at Walgreens Infusion and Respiratory Services; Apria/Coram Healthcare; Crescent Healthcare; and Kindred Healthcare.

“I chose CMH as I was looking for a forward-thinking company whose core values are aligned with mine, one where I could not only utilize my career competencies but also broaden my horizons in the work environment,” Durinda says.

Durinda is a certified nutrition support clinician through the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition. She also is board-certified in gerontological nutrition by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. She earned her master’s degree in nutrition from Idaho State University.
