Why did you choose to major in Public Health-Global Health (PH-GH)?
I chose to major in Public Health-Global Health because I am passionate about furthering equity and justice in various health systems. I wanted a discipline that was flexible, rigorous and interdisciplinary, and the UW offered that!

What’s your favorite aspect about studying public health?
My favorite aspect about studying public health is its intersectionality and multi-faceted approach to (and influence on) promoting and protecting the health of populations. Not one study or field is left out of public health, which is what makes it so crucial to creating and sustaining health equity.

More Rankings

The University of Washington’s mask policy continues to be guided by the Centers for Disease Control’s community level assessment and state and local health guidance. King and Pierce counties recently moved to the “low” community level category and have stayed in that category for more than a week.

As a result of this improvement in the COVID-19 situation, the UW has moved to masks being recommended inside all University facilities where they aren’t otherwise required. Masks had been strongly recommended while King and Pierce counties were in the “medium” category.

Masks continue to be required in health-care and clinical facilities. This includes the Health Sciences Express, UW/Fred Hutch South Lake Union and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance shuttles.

Masks should be well fitted and high quality, such as N95, KN95, KF94 and surgical masks. These types of masks protect the wearer better than a cloth face covering and we will continue to make them available at no cost on each campus during the coming quarters.

Should one or both counties move back into the “medium” or “high” categories, or we experience increases in campus transmission and/or the emergence of a more virulent variant, our mask policy will be reevaluated.

UW Covid-19 Updates

Hello Friends of the Resilience Lab! 


We at the Resilience Lab are excited to announce the opening of our fifth annual cycle for our Resilience and Compassion Seed Grants! In partnership with the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF), the Resilience Lab awards seed grants up to $5,000 to students, staff, and instructors to support the beginning stages of projects that cultivate resilience, compassion, and sustainability.  

Resilience and Compassion Seed Grant funds can be used for workshops, retreats, activities, applied research, projects, etc. that support the combined goals of the Resilience Lab and CSF: 

  • to foster connectedness, belonging, and community;
  • to embrace both commonalities and diversity within the human experience;
  • to cultivate kindness, compassion, and gratitude toward each other and ourselves;
  • to highlight connections between personal identities and sustainability in the UW community;
  • to spark dialogue about environmental and social issues that have a disproportionately negative impact on communities of color;
  • and to provide opportunities for applied and project-based learning for the UW community. 

If you have a project that you think works towards our goals of a more compassionate and sustainable campus, we encourage you to apply! All members of the university — students, staff, and faculty — are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 in seed grant funds; however, preference will be given to teams that include students.


Applications for the 2022-2023 Resilience and Compassion seed grant cycle are open April 1, 2022 and close May 1, 2022. Please visit our website for application instructions, proposal recommendations, reporting/funding guidelines, and office hours.

During this webinar, we are planning provide background of the work that we do at our agency with a short presentation, followed by a panel discussion. This email serves an invitation to your students across multiple disciplines, including biology, chemistry, communications, epidemiology, environmental science, public health, and many others. We will also discuss current and future opportunities for internships, fellowships, and employment that may also be of interest to students. We would love for your students to join and participate in this upcoming webinar. 

 My contact information is listed below, I am happy to discuss any questions that you may have regarding this upcoming webinar or any future opportunities within NCEH/ATSDR for your students.
