Urban Education Center Clinic Cleanup Project 

On Saturday April 14th , Marylhurst volunteers particiapated in the clean up and made a big difference!

The National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) is opening a new community clinic and needed help converting an old day care into a usable medical office.    Marylhurst volunteers spent hours cleaning and organizing inside the building.  Volunteers also spent time outside weeding, picking up trash, removing graffiti and mowing the lawn.    It was a great day of service!

Health Panel with Emily Harris this Thursday


Please join us this Thursday!
Health Interactive Panel: Access, Advocacy, Action    
Moderated by Emily Harris, a former NPR correspondent and OPB host
Explore the challenges people face in obtaining health care and learn what you might do to help. This is a “Fred Friendly” type interactive discussion offering a chance to think and learn together. Moderator Emily Harris leads us through a real-life experience, seeking responses from a panel of experts and audience members.
In the fall of 2010, Emily facilitated a memorable and challenging interactive discussion at Marylhurst regarding our food supply system, (exploring the issues of cost, hunger, waste, and nutrition through the web of relationships among farmers, migrant workers, truckers, food service businesses, restaurants, importers and consumers.) This time, the discussion focuses on health care, including financial and physical issues, coming changes, and the gaps left despite the interdependence of multiple sectors. The evening includes exploration of how individuals can affect change in this complex system.
WHEN:            Thursday April 19th 6:30-8:00PM
WHERE:          Marylhurst University, Clark Commons
