Community Events

We are committed to supporting community partners in our shared mission to find a cure and end the suffering of cancer.

We often join benefit walks as “Team OHSU,” which includes our patients, families, staff and friends. Join our team and show your support for survivors everywhere.

We also offer classes and educational events that are open to patients, their families and the public.
