History

Northwest Access Exchange started as an idea at Portland State University in 2001 and grew to involve Oregon Health & Science University. On January 1st 2014 operation of NWAX transitioned from OHSU/PSU over to a new independent not for profit 501(c)(6) organization that was formed to operate the exchange going forward. The new entity is operated by volunteers from our membership base, the board of directors and the executive director.
