The WWAMI Area Health Education Center (AHEC) at the University of Washington works to improve the diversity, distribution, and quality of the health workforce in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. The AHEC program relies on partnerships with communities in the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (the “WWAMI” states) to promote health career pathways, create educational opportunities for students from junior high school all the way through professional and post-graduate training, and support health care providers in underserved populations.

The WWAMI AHEC continues its more than two decades of work as an integral part of the larger WWAMI program, a 30+ years old medical education program serving the five state region. Consistent with the overall aims of the Federal AHEC Program, the WWAMI AHEC supports activities that provide health workforce development and education away from large cities through partnerships with independent AHEC centers. By sharing resources with the WWAMI medical program, the WWAMI AHEC is well-positioned to help improve the quality and distribution of all health professionals into the mostly-rural region.

I am excited to let you all know about an upcoming opportunity to see the release of the movie Suicide: The Ripple Effect. Check out the movie trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LytKNC405oI

Here is a quick synopsis of the film, This film is part of a global mission to help reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world. Through sharing stories of survival and recovery we are creating significant awareness of this health crisis, while helping people find the support they need to stay alive, heal and #BeHereTomorrow!

I have signed us up here in Anchorage as a host site, and the Dimond Regal Cinemas is on-board to show the screening March 14th at 7:30pm. I will include the link for reserving tickets, please share this with whomever you want. I really think this movie has the potential to make a very positive impact. I listened to several prominent experts in the field yesterday explain their hope for this movie to save lives and I was very encouraged!

Here is the link to reserve tickets.
