Whitebird

Tiffany Eckert

This is the time of year many of us are looking at health insurance coverage and making decisions. There is a non-traditional medical model being embraced by healthcare policymakers on both the left and the right. One doctor in Eugene offers direct-to-patient care for a flat monthly fee.

Each year, Oregon County Fair honors loved ones who have passed on. This is the remembrance of one fair family member: Hershel Bloom. Hershel came to Eugene in the mid 70’s and was drawn to volunteer at Whitebird Clinic, then a fledgling crisis support network. Bobbie Dritz volunteered for Whitebird too and he became fast friends with Hersh.
