OHSU medical students put lessons into action for homeless, uninsured
04/19/10 Portland, OR
Medical students will tell you they get so wrapped up in their intense studies that sometimes life outside disappears. Today, in the dim, dripping, chilly spaces of an underground parking lot a couple blocks off Portland's Burnside Street, life had an appointment. And dozens of medical, dental, nursing and pharmacy students from Oregon Health & Science University had a reminder: This is what drew you to the profession. This is why you study. This is who needs you.
