Innovate Health Initiative
WBBA’s mission is to support and help grow Washington State’s life science ecosystem, and our ten-year vision is that Washington will be a global leader in life science innovation and healthcare delivery. The future of our industry is dependent on its integration with information technology, thus WBBA is embracing the health IT/health tech community as a vital player in the life science ecosystem.
