Bellingham, WA, Oct 16, 2017 – The Binaytara Foundation, a nonprofit that helps improve patient access to healthcare, has hired Aaron Weinberg as its development director.
A resident of Bellingham, Weinberg graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism. For the last six years, he has worked as a journalist at the Skagit Valley Herald covering topics such as healthcare and business.
His duties as development director for the Binaytara Foundation include grant writing, fundraising and public relations. He is looking forward to furthering the foundation’s goal of improving healthcare through advocacy, education and innovation.
“The Binaytara Foundation has helped serve patients locally and abroad,” Weinberg said. “I’m excited to join such an ambitious team during a time when healthcare access is one of the most important issues in America and all over the world.”
Since it was founded in 2007, the Binaytara Foundation has developed major programs overseas. Most recently, it created the first home hospice and palliative care program in Madhya Pradesh, India, a state with a population of 73 million. It also founded the first bone marrow transplant center in Nepal, which since 2016 has treated patients who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to the type of life saving operation.
