Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates works to establish a publicly funded, equitable, comprehensive, affordable health care system for all people in Oregon (and eventually all across the U.S.).  An affiliate member of Health Care for All - Oregon, MVHCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Based in Corvallis, MVHCA currently
includes more than 2000 advocates in the mid-valley. 

NOTE: the monthly Advocates meeting will be on October 29—please note the date change.
