Staff List

Who made Health/PAC the organization it was? It was a set of talented staff, associates, Board members, interns and volunteers dedicated to bringing social justice to the health care arena. Ultimately numbering at least 125 over the life of the organization, their names appear below in roughly the order they joined the organization. These were taken from the Bulletin mastheads. Since movement between these groups was quite fluid, no attempt has been made to distinguish between them. Unfortunately, the masthead does not do justice to many interns whose research and writing were vital to the organization. We are eager for the list to be complete and accurate. If you worked at Health/PAC and you do not see your name, please let us know.

Of note: Health/PAC went from a staff organization in the early years to a Board organization in 1979. It also maintained a San Francisco office (called “Health/PAC West”) from 1973 to the Fall of 1976, whose staff members are noted below by “(SF)."
