Yesterday, Nick was honored to be a panelist for a discussion about people with a serious or chronic illness leading fulfilling, healthy lives.

The event was hosted by the Oregon Coalition for Living Well with Serious Illness, a new regional coalition of healthcare industry leaders and partners from across the state.

Nick shared stories about his cancer journey, including the need to listen to patients in order to provide the highest level of care.

Cambia Health Foundation’s President, Peggy Maguire, served as moderator. Nick was joined on the panel by Dr. John Hunter, Vice President of OHSU and CEO of the OHSU Health System; Mark Ganz, CEO of Cambia Health Solutions; Dr. Ben LeBlanc, Interim CEO of Oregon Providence Medical Group; and Grace Stratton, Field Representative for Senator Ron Wyden’s Office.
