Our team is a mix of smart and creative professionals, committed to making the connections that all Washington families need to be healthy. We believe that we can only do our jobs well by learning about the populations we serve, being committed to reducing disparities, and understanding the barriers and addressing the processes that create social inequalities. By doing so, we equip our dedicated staff to conduct powerful work capable of creating meaningful change for families and communities.
