Posted by on July 14th, 2011 at 9:26 am

Four students from Oregon Health & Science University are on a five week, 1,000 mile bike trip through Oregon. The students, three of them studying medicine and one aspiring veterinarian, are using the trip to raise awareness about the healthcare challenges faced by rural communities.

The students are stopping along the way to talk with community groups about how to improve local healthcare options.

For more details, see the OHSU press release. You can check out their route and follow their journey on their blog.
