Bend’s Volunteers in Medicine Calls for Nominations for Ronald E. Carver, MD Heart of Healthcare Award

Recognizing Central Oregon licensed medical professionals who donate care to the medically underserved locally, nationally or internationally.

Hundreds of medical professionals in Central Oregon donate thousands of hours each year to care for those who cannot afford, or do not have, access to healthcare.  Many volunteer close to home, while others travel around the world to serve those in need.


Uninsured Despite the Mandate

Low-income Oregonians are expected to make up the bulk of the state’s population who still won’t have health insurance despite the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that they do so. Getting them covered is a priority for the goal of health insurance for all Oregonians.
