CareOregon's members

They are the big family down the street you exchange waves with and the senior living alone. They are immigrants living in urban Portland and the families living in the same house their grandfather was born in. They are CareOregon members. They represent a sampling of Oregon life, yet their health and life experiences are as diverse as the countries, counties, cities and county lanes they’ve called home. We’d like to share with you a few of these stories.

Do you have a health story you’d like to share? CareOregon and the OCCV are talking to Oregonians about why health care access is important. If you are interested in sharing your story, e-mail or call the Communications Department at
503-416-4100 or 1-800-224-4840.
