Mission

The Health Equity Organizing initiative brings together clinic patients, staff and members of their communities to identify and tackle local issues that affect their health and quality of life.

Strategy

Social and economic injustices contribute to poor health. Health Equity Organizing creates a space for people to talk about how those problems impact their lives...and how to change them. It draws on best practices in community organizing to build relational power, surface shared interests, and collevetively advance real solutions. It equips people to act on their own behalf as public leaders, advancing solutions that work for them...not what others think is good for them. Participating clinics include Country Doctor Community Clinic, Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center, and Odessa Brown Children's Clinic.

History

In 2016, medical residents at Swedish Cherry Hill began the initative to build "power with" their patients in addressing health disparities in the clinics they serve. It has since been supported by the UW Health Equity Circle student organization and the IAF Northwest, an alliance of religious, education, health, labor and community organizations united to effectively bring about practical solutions to advance the common good. Some recent accomplishments won by IAF Northwest include bringing mandatory earned sick, safe, and family leave benefits to 40,000 uncovered workers in Spokane and helping pass the Best Starts for Kids levy that provides $68 million per year for prevention and early intervention programs that give all children the best chance to succeed.

Get Involved!

NEW: Graduate Certificate in One Health

Posted: September 27, 2017

more info...

What is One Health?

The growing recognition of the links between human health, animal health, and the environment requires new tools for cooperation and collaboration between professionals working in these sectors. Such transdisciplinary "One Health" approaches demand further development of a common body of knowledge and a common scientific and clinical vocabulary for understanding and controlling diseases affecting both human beings and animals, that often are related to shared environmental exposures.

The Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences is offering a new Graduate Certificate in One Health to UW Graduate students in all disciplines. 

The One Health curriculum emphasizes the linkages and integration between human, animal, and environmental health. Specific areas of emphasis include zoonotic diseases, the human animal bond, integrated approaches to human, animal, and environmental risk and outcome data, and human animal medicine (including clinical comparative medicine). The Graduate Certificate in One Health is intended to enhance the education of matriculated UW graduate students beyond their regular course of study.

Please see the website for details on the curriculum as well as application instructions:

SOC WL 598: Theory and Metatheory in Social Research

SLN Code: 21359

Credits: 3

Time: Tuesdays, 8:30 am– 11:20 pm 

Instructor: Taryn Lindhorst, PhD; tarynlin@uw.edu

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This graduate seminar focuses on the nature and role of theory in contemporary social welfare and social science scholarship informed by a central commitment to social justice and multiculturalism. Taking a philosophy of social science approach, it provides foundations in the socially constructed nature of theory and social “problems” and in historical changes in conceptual and theoretical perspectives on human society, interaction, and change. Domains of interest encompass a range of theoretical perspectives and provide the opportunity for exploring the theoretical and metatheoretical assumptions underpinning major research paradigms in social science and social welfare scholarship. The course also encourages critical, collaborative reflection on the role of theory in contemporary interdisciplinary research environments. The primary assignment provides students with the opportunity for in-depth study of the theoretical frameworks prevailing in their area of personal research interest. We will also consider specific topics for discussion and additional readings depending on the interests of the seminar participants.

Although this is a required seminar for doctoral students in social welfare, it is open to graduate students from other programs interested in exploring the philosophical and theoretical foundations of social science research. Interested students, faculty and graduate advisers may contact Professor Taryn Lindhorst (e-mail: tarynlin@uw.edu).

This course focuses on written and oral communication for environmental health and public health professionals, with particular emphasis on three main areas:

  • conveying information more effectively to technical audiences,
  • translating that information for general audiences in the public arena, and
  • crafting effective commentary or opinion pieces relating to topics of professional interest.


We will explore the principles of effective writing for technical articles, proposals, and reports with attention to structure, clarity, style, and language usage. Students learn to craft an executive summary of a research report for technical audiences.  They develop greater agility as writers by translating that same content into the form of a press release that could be disseminated to broader audiences through the media and the Web.
           
Students explore issues in public communication of science and framing of science issues. They gain a greater familiarity with the societal context for environmental health and public health developments and learn to distill the essence of an issue for headlines and short spots. As an exercise in translating science for broader audiences, they will research and write a news article on a research or policy topic. Students will then explore what makes an effective commentary, examining issues of content, structure, and tone, and will write a "Policy Forum" style piece on a current issue of their choice.

The course is designed to build communication proficiency through a combination of writing and revising assignments, selected readings, lecture/discussion sessions, oral presentations, and hands-on activities. On selected assignments, students will have the opportunity to share drafts with the group, to practice their reviewing skills, and to receive feedback from classmates and the instructor. Students completing the class will have several professional writing samples to add to their portfolios.
