We ensure that our neighbors get the healthcare they need while working locally to improve the health care system.
The Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement (WAHA) is a community-based organization governed by a leadership board that includes concerned citizens and representatives from local health care, public health, business, and governmental organizations.
