(Often) when I walked into (patients’) rooms, they were emotional, they were angry and sometimes they were not talking to their own family and didn’t want to talk to me. I got them to talk about their values and goals. Generally, we find that people have shared goals and values.” … Read More

Dr. Jenni Neahring

I got this message in an email yesterday from the American Cancer Society - Cancer Action Network. The BIPARTISAN healthcare bill, supported by every Oregon Representative, and previously stuck in Walden's E&C Committee now will have a chance to become law! This bill will provide the chance to build the healthcare workforce, educate the public and do much needed research. It has over 270 supporters in the House already.

And if it passes he'll take full credit.
