Sara believes health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. As a legislator, she helped pass Oregon's landmark health care reform bill, and was an outspoken advocate for expanding health coverage to tens of thousands of uninsured Oregon children. She helped expand access to life saving medications by expanding the Oregon Prescription Drug Program and successfully sponsoring legislation to create the Oregon Charitable Pharmacy Program. She helped pass legislation to end insurance industry discrimination against children with disabilities. She will continue to work with her colleagues to ensure that every Oregonian has access to high quality, affordable health care (including mental health and dental care) when and where they need it.
