Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center

RiverStone Health offers free HIV/AIDS education and training for healthcare professionals in Montana through a partnership with the Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center (MWAETC) at the University of Washington.

Our programs teach prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of HIV and related co-morbidities, such as hepatitis B and C and STIs. We also provide training to incorporate sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) language in practice and to reduce the impact of implicit bias on health outcomes.

Seminars, lectures, workshops and other technical assistance can be in-person or virtual, depending on current COVID-19 guidelines.

Since 2002, we have proudly provided training to thousands of healthcare professionals across Montana.
