Occupy Medical is an all-volunteer program that offers FREE medical care every Sunday from noon to 3:30pm at the 8th and Oak Park Blocks.  We have doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, CNA’s, pre-med students, herbalists and an occasional chiropractor, respiratory/occupational/physical therapist or hair dresser.  The Occupy Medical program received its non-profit 501(C)3 designation last year.  We really need is 3-4 regular volunteers from 10am to noon and 3:45pm to 5:30pm to set up and take down the three tents that we work out of.  If it has been raining the tarp part of the tents needs to be hung to dry in a building in west Eugene.  We store the tent poles and equipment on a red and white remodeled blood mobile bus that also comes to the park blocks. Unfortunately many of us volunteers with medical training have physical limitations that make it impossible to do this set up and take down.  We need help.
