PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon State University student who visited Portland-area medical providers amid a 2017 meningococcal outbreak at her Corvallis campus has sued for $3 million, claiming her diagnosis was delayed.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the lawsuit filed Monday says then-21-year-old Julia Hanson visited Providence Health & Services and Pediatric Associates of the Northwest and that they failed to diagnose her properly.

The suit says she nearly died, had a lengthy hospital stay and suffers from permanent brain damage and other negative effects.

Providence Health & Services and Pediatric Associates of the Northwest declined to comment.
