January’s Discovering Our Story TV

Our January 2015 guest was Linda Nilsen-Solares, MPA. Linda serves as Executive Director for Project Access NOW, which connects low-income, uninsured people to donated care across the Portland metropolitan area.

Linda has had diverse experience in the world of health care, starting with public health community organizing in Central America with a non governmental organization called Outreach International. After moving to the Portland area in 1993, she spent 12 years working for Washington County, most of that time in the Department of Health and Human Services, where she worked as a Health Educator and Program Manager for the Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening program.
