Diane Lund-Muzikant is the Executive Director of Oregon Health Forum as well as the Board Chair and Editor Emeritus of The Lund Report. Under her leadership, these two organizations have become the leading resources for health policy issues in the Pacific Northwest. Earlier, as a freelance journalist, her work appeared in Good Housekeeping, People Magazine, The Oregonian and national health policy journals. Diane is also a 20-year breast cancer survivor and was the co-founder of Rachel’s Friends Breast Cancer Coalition, an educational and advocacy organization focused on the environmental impacts of cancer.
Kate Requardt is our administrative assistant and office manager for the Lund Report and Oregon Health Forum. She has more than 15 years of experience in administrative roles spanning an array of sectors, most recently with Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Southwest Portland. Originally from the East Coast, Requardt moved to Oregon to earn a higher education degree. While attending Lewis & Clark College in Southwest Portland, she became enamored with the culture and environment of the area and decided to stay after earning her bachelor’s degree in English in 2005. She is proud to call Oregon home.
