Having lived most of his adult life in Corvallis, OR, he was involved in the 2002 Oregon ballot initiative for universal access to health care, and returned to the Seattle area, where he grew up, in 2008.
Ronnie Shure, PharmBS - Ronnie is Vice President of HCFA-WA and has been an active member of HCFA-WA's Political Action and Outreach committees. Ronnie worked as a pharmacist providing care to underserved populations in public health, behavioral health, and substance abuse programs for 42 years. Instead of retirement, he has transitioned to become an advocate for social justice in health care for all people. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Temple Beth Am in Northeast Seattle, the Board of Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action, and the Health Care Work Group of Faith Action Network. Most importantly, his retirement transition allows him the joy of spending time with his wife and daughters and grandchildren. He can be reached at [email protected].
