"What is Our Role in Creating Just and Equitable Healthcare?"

Participants from the Teaching-Learning Academy (TLA) at Western Libraries invite you to explore this question during the upcoming off-campus dialogue group event co-hosted by the TLA, the Volunteer Center of Whatcom County, and Western's Center for Community Learning.

This event will be held from 4-5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 18 in the Giesecke Ballroom at the Bellingham YWCA, 1026 N. Forest St.

The beginning of the session features panelists from various nonprofit organizations, followed by small break-out groups facilitated by TLA students.

The goal of these dialogues is to connect with people on topics that affect both the Western community, and the local Bellingham community. Open to everyone, participation in these dialogues is a great way to get involved, meet new people.
