Jeremiah RigsbyStudent Health and Wellness Representative
Before attending law school, I worked as a policy aide for U.S. Congressman Kurt Schrader, where my legislative responsibilities provided me with the opportunity to do extensive work in health care policy. I have also worked as a legal intern at Health Share of Oregon, the newly formed coordinated care organization that is at the forefront of Oregon’s effort to transform the way health care is delivered in our state. After reviewing our student health care options (or lack of options), I have questions as to whether or not our student body is receiving the level of care and protection we deserve. Considering the price each student pays for the current student health plan, our student body must be well represented should new health care options be considered in the future. As the Student Heath & Wellness Representative, I will work to make sure our health care dollars are spent in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
