About the Blogger

Evan Saulino is a family physician who works in Portland, Oregon at a "safety-net" clinic - where approximately half his patients have private insurance, and half receive Medicaid or are uninsured. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of California - San Diego, and his medical degree and PhD in Microbiology from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. After time doing research in a lab studying anthrax at Harvard Medical School, he shifted gears and completed his Family Medicine residency training at Oregon Health and Science University. In addition to seeing patients in the clinic, he works on a variety of health policy, advocacy, and communications issues in coordination with community and physician groups, as well as with legislators in Oregon. In his free time, you'll likely find him coaching his kids soccer team, biking, or playing guitar.
