We at Occupy Medical are a group of dedicated health care professionals and support personnel who believe healthcare is a basic human right that must be made accessible to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Since the first Occupy Eugene encampment, Occupy Medical has evolved from a loosely knit association of volunteers providing first aid in the camps into a cohesive team of primary care practitioners delivering no cost, high quality medical services to the Eugene-Springfield community at large. Our current goal is to continue directly addressing the need for access to medical care by offering free medical clinics to all in need throughout Lane County, and hopefully, beyond. We have concluded that the most effective means to reach those who need our services is to create a mobile medical clinic that provides primary care in the towns and cities where the need exists, at a convenient time, and manner appropriate for the populations served.
UPDATE: We regret to inform you that October 15th was our final day at 509. White Bird, who has graciously offered their building to us for the past year, is selling the building and we at OM are scrambling to find a new home. We will NOT be holding a clinic on Sunday, October 22nd while we continue to organize our warehouse and brainstorm possible properties to hold clinic and serve our community. We thank you all for your support and love and we will be back soon. Stay tuned here or on our Facebook page for updates.
