WWAHEC Shutdown

It is with great regret that the Western Washington Area Health Education Center (WWAHEC) Board of Directors announces an upcoming suspension of operations.

Since 1987, WWAHEC has proudly served the citizens of Washington state to ensure equity of and access to health care for underserved rural and urban populations in Western Washington through education and workforce development. Changes in funding sources and government agency priorities have made continuation of services fiscally impossible. Following the completion of current contracts and commitments in the final quarter of fiscal year 2016, an orderly dissolution of the non-profit corporation will proceed.

In the past, WSDA offered retired dentists and hygienists who participated in WWAHEC’s Volunteer/Retired Provider Program free entrance to the Pacific Northwest Dental Conference (PNDC). With the suspension of the program, this free registration option will no longer be available.
