In Memory of Chris Apgar

OrHIMA Members,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of OrHIMA Board member, Chris Apgar.  Chris passed away on December 11, 2021.

As you know, Chris has been a part of the Board for several years and was most recently the Director of Communications.  His work in OrHIMA has been invaluable and he will be greatly missed.  Along with his contributions within Oregon, he has worked with many healthcare professionals throughout the US and has made his mark as an expert in the field.  Not only was Chris a dedicated professional he was also a friend and mentor to many he met along the way.

Chris’ Funeral Mass will be held at 11am on January 7, 2022, at St. Clare Parish in Portland, Oregon. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
