Deadline to apply is Sept 4. Appointments will be made at the Sept. 22 Task Force meeting.
The Task Force needs to appoint a diverse group of individuals based on a consumer perspective. People that are familiar with and currently impacted by the struggles, barriers, and inequities of the system are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Task Force Advisory Committee is to bring the perspective of those that are using the healthcare system. It will be important that the Advisory Committee be comprised of those ready to be a clear voice of those most directly impacted and those who deeply understand the current inequities. If you, or someone you know, is interested in participating or has questions, please immediately contact: firstname.lastname@example.org at 503-986-1522 or LPRO staff at 503-986-1520 or 503-986-1509.
Public engagement is an essential part of designing and achieving universal healthcare in Oregon. The voice of the public must be there at every step to stand up for justice in healthcare.
Now is the time for all of us to get more involved than ever. This will continue to require a mass movement.
