Husky 100 Taps 10 Students from the School of Public Health
Public health students are making headlines in this year’s Husky 100. One student, from The Gambia, overcame discrimination, disability and homelessness to become an attorney and global health advocate. Another student, committed to social justice, wants to improve LGBT health care settings. Yet another captured true stories of resilience from the UW community that would have otherwise not been told.
Of the 100 UW students named to the Husky 100 list, 10 of them have ties to the University of Washington School of Public Health. They’re master’s students and certificate students, and undergraduates enrolled in the public health major and in global health or nutritional sciences minors. The students are recognized for their discovery mindset, capacity for leadership and ability to make connections between what they learn in the classroom and how they can make a difference in diverse communities.
The Husky 100 recognizes students from across the UW Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell campuses who are making the most of their Husky experience. The award comes with several benefits, including networking opportunities, invitations to exclusive events and customized career counseling from the UW Career Center.
Congratulations to the following SPH students and alumna who made the 2017 Husky 100:
