Matthew Getz

 

Matthew Getz has been an Administrative Coordinator at Oregon Health Sciences University since 2011, managing post-inpatient care for patients in OHSU’s Solid-organ Transplant, HIV/AIDS, Bone marrow transplant, Child Development and Rehabilitation Center, Knight Cancer Institute, Hepatitis, and Rheumatology clinics.  Previously he served as Lead Ambulatory Chemotherapy Technician at OHSU for their nine Knight Cancer Center Community Hematology/Oncology clinics, pediatric oncology at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and research infusion clinics.

Mr. Getz is currently pursuing his transfer degree from Portland Community College, where he has been on the Dean’s List all terms and is a member in good standing of the Golden Key International Honour Society. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Peacock Productions Inc., a 501c3 non-profit corporation to promote the education of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and to eliminate prejudice against that community. Peacock Productions, Inc. administers the Audria M. Edwards Scholarship Fund (AME Fund). Since 1992, the AME Fund has granted more than $182,000 to GLBT students and/or the students of GLBT parents.

“As the population ages the need for effective and quality care for senior citizens must be taken into account by the next generation,” Mr. Getz says.  “As a person in my late twenties, I believe my generation should start looking to the future and ensure the health and wellness of those that blazed the trail before us.”
