COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & ADVOCACY
Together we can bridge the health disparities gap!
WHY WE EXIST
Washington State nurses reflect the rich Latinx demographics of our State, and are leaders in designing a racially and ethnically diverse and inclusive quality health system that is equitable and available to all.
WW-NAHN was founded as a local chapter of The National Association of Hispanic Nurses and is run by an all volunteer membership united by a commitment to eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities affecting Latinx communities and populations. Racial Health Equity is our compass and #Anti-Racism is our practice as we aim to:
(1) Center Latinx populations as part of the racial and ethnic health equity continuum of the nursing profession;
(2) Intentionally lead with racial & ethnic health equity & inclusion as the lens to uncover, name, examine and eliminate the mechanisms resulting in unjust health disparities affecting Latinx communities and populations.
