On August 27, UW School of Pharmacy Dean Sean D. Sullivan, Washington State Senator David Frockt and other UW Health Sciences deans took part in the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new Health Sciences Education Building. The state-of-the-art facility, scheduled to be completed in May 2022, will serve as an interdisciplinary environment for pharmacists, doctors, dentists, nurses, social workers and public health experts to learn and work together.

“This new facility will enable our students across the full range of health sciences to work in a setting that better mirrors the way they’ll be engaging in patient care as professionals,” said UW President Ana Mari Cauce. “This will result in better care for the patients they serve, because we’ve seen the benefits that come from coordinating various health disciplines, rather than keeping them siloed.”
