Congressman Blumenauer visited the Oregon Mission of Mercy at the Oregon Convention Center with Dr. Jill Price. Oregon Mission of Mercy, a large-scale free dental clinic, began last year and was the first Mission of Mercy on the west coast.

“It is inspiring to see such an enormous community response to the health and wellbeing of our neighbors in need,” commented Blumenauer.

This year’s Mission of Mercy is estimated to have served upwards of 2,000 patients, with over 1,900 volunteers donating over $1 million of dental work.
