Chapter Medical Advisory Committee
CCFA Northwest is proud to have a robust committee of healthcare providers serving on its Chapter Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), led by Chair Ghassan Wahbeh, MD. These individuals provide CCFA staff with invaluable support including insight on issues that are important to their patients, directing their patients to take advantage of CCFA’s services, and act as local liaisons for planning events in their communities.
