Lester Baskin, MD

SVP Partner since 2007

Profession: Internal medicine physician, private practice (Baskin Clinic)

For fun: spending time with my two girls, Annabel and Lily, at the zoo, the park, or the Jamison Park fountain

Your favorite spot to relax in Oregon: Central Oregon, for the backpacking and views

Latest Inspiration: My daughter, for her enthusiasm and curiosity

Your perspective on SVPP: I feel with SVP there is a group of individuals with like-minded social service goals, and the teamwork to accomplish things I could not do myself. As opposed to feeling helpless, I feel more empowered to make a difference here in Portland.
