Our vision – that only by working together can we create a system for all Oregonians that results in better health care and health. During our 2018 Conference we will:

  • Present a framework we can use to improve our health care system
  • Offer updates on federal and state health policy.
  • Identify the priority areas for action to improve health and provide better care.
  • Create powerful health caucuses that come from the community instead of a political party. 

Featured Speakers Include: 

Keynote by former Governor John Kitzhaber
Rep Alissa Keny-Guyer with mental health patient advocates sharing their successful advocacy this legislative session.
Rep Diego Hernandez with Cover All Kids advocate Aldo Salano, Oregon Latino Health Coalition 
Health Care for All Oregon- Tom Sincic, President
Rep Julie Fahey with The Reproductive Health Equity Act (HB 3391)-Grayson Dempsey, Oregon Foundation for Reproductive Health/NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon
OpenNotes- Liz Salmi @TheLizArmy

We Can Do Better is not your typical non-profit, and each year we host a not-so-typical conference as illustrated by this comment. To get a flavor of our conference, please see our page about last year’s event.
