Learning Connections Partnerships
An important part of our mission is developing partnerships with other organizations dedicated to supporting CHMCs through education and resource sharing.
From long-time partners such as Region X state PCAs, NACHC and HRSA, to newer collaborations such as the National Network of Libraries of Medicine at the UW, we seek to improve and expand information delivery.
