Right as Rain can mean many great things: Things are going very well. You're OK. You're healthy. The 100,000 percent honest truth. That Adele song

To us, it means living your best, healthiest life—the Pacific Northwest way.

It's our mission.

At UW Medicine, our mission is to improve the health of the public. To that end, our researchers are studying everything from stem cells to life expectancy. Our hospitals and neighborhood clinics are providing expert care close to home. And our medical school—which is ranked No. 1 in primary care education —is training the people who will care for you and your family for years to come.

That’s a lot of health knowledge—and we think you should benefit from it. We created Right as Rain to serve as a resource to connect you with health and wellness information you can trust from researchers, healthcare providers and faculty from UW Medicine and the University of Washington.

At Right as Rain, you’ll find these experts’ tips in the content we share each and every week. So pull up a chair or take us with you on the go. We’ll give you the scoop on foods you think are healthy, but actually aren’t and why you feel so sore after you try a new boot camp class. There’s something for the moms among us, too—because we know life is way better when you and your baby get more sleep.

It's also about connecting with you.
