The Oregon Association of Hospitals Research & Education Foundation has established a relief fund to support hospital workers affected by the state’s wildfires, as well as future disasters.

“As fires rage across Oregon, dozens of front-line health care workers have lost their homes and their cherished belongings,” the foundation notes. “Our health care heroes are there for us when we need them most. Now they need our help to stay safe and get back on their feet.”

AHA will make a donation to the fund.
