This annual event brings members of WSRS from around the state to Olympia to advocate for policy that assures healthcare access and safety for members of the public. It’s an exciting introduction to how ordinary healthcare providers can promote good sense public policy by making themselves available to explain issues, challenges and innovations to lawmakers and members of their staff.  Don’t miss it!
