The goal of the Northwest Association of Biomedical Research (NWABR) is to strengthen public trust in research through education and dialogue. Their programs include essay contests for middle school students, ethics workshops, and a science fair. On their website, visitors can look over the materials in four primary sections: Community, Teachers, Students, and Members. The Teachers area is particularly strong, as it includes curriculum packages on bioethics, introductory bioinformatics, and genetic testing. Each of these packages includes an overview, lesson plans, additional resources, and related events sponsored by the NWABR. The Students area includes materials for young people, including information about the annual essay contest and the youth ethics summit. In the Community area, visitors will find information about NWABR's community outreach and a link to their blog. The blog is witty and interesting, and includes posts like "Do you know where your DNA is?"
