Volunteers needed! Help evaluate the Seattle/King County Clinic with Remote Area Medical® for the under-served
The Center for Community Health and Evaluation (CCHE) at the Group Health Research Institute seeks volunteers to help with an evaluation of the Seattle/King County Clinic with Remote Area Medical (RAM®) on October 23 – 26 in KeyArena at Seattle Center. Volunteers will help patients leaving the free clinic complete a survey about their experience and ongoing health care needs. This will inform the Puget Sound region about under-served populations and how local communities can improve access to health care and other resources.
No experience administering surveys is needed; short, but mandatory, training sessions will be held at the University of Washington on October 15th and the Group Health Research Institute on October 20th. Bilingual volunteers are strongly encouraged to participate.

The HungerU Tour launched at the beginning of September and the University of Washington will be our eighth stop. Our HungerU trailer will be located at George Washington Lane between Odegaard Library and the Henry Art Gallery and will be there today and tomorrow. If you have not already heard about HungerU, it is an initiative of the Farm Journal Foundation designed to educate college students about the significance of modern agriculture and how it affects the world’s food crisis (see video – http://bit.ly/1rkDJYn).
Please help us direct your students and colleagues to our trailer where they can interact with our HungerU Crew, which is comprised of current college students and recent graduates. There they will learn more about hunger issues and food security, while also partaking in our different activities. Students, professors and staff can also take our 30-second HungerU Challenge and, if they choose to join the fight by submitting their email address (which will only be used by us for occasional updates), we will donate a meal on their behalf.
Thank you and see you at the HungerU Trailer!!!! Go Huskies!

The Seattle Human Rights Commission is looking for an intern to help raise public awareness on the State’s pending proposal on a new Fish Consumption Rate and Cancer Risk Level. Industry claims that a higher FCR with a low CRL will be cost prohibitive and impracticable here. Oregon recently revised their FCR and CRL and industry is experiencing a net zero effect. We would like to organize a fall panel highlighting Oregon’s experience implementing the more protective FCR and CRL. This will be in follow up to a June panel highlighting the human rights perspectives on the issue. If you are interested in interning with the Commission, we would like 3-4 hours per week of your time, and we’re happy to assist you in getting course credit for this through the University. You will be provided with work space and close advising.
