PEER ADVOCATE INTERN (2x):
The Peer Advocate Internship is designed for a LGBTQ or Allied young adult who has experience working young gay/bi/trans* men, or young Men who have Sex with Men (MSM), regardless of sexual identity. Under close supervision and support the Peer Advocate Intern conducts outreach to young MSM in order to collect survey responses for a formative assessment project. The purpose of this assessment is to evaluate current knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of young MSM in Seattle/King County in order to inform future programming and HIV/STI prevention efforts for at-risk populations. Outreach to the target population occurs in-person, at venues and events primarily frequented by young MSM, and online. The Peer Advocate Intern benefits from the position by developing and learning marketable skills for future employment. The Peer Advocate Intern works with and reports directly to Lifelong’s Assistant Prevention Education Manager. This position is a part-time, temporary, non-union position that does not extend beyond a total of 250 hours. The compensation is $12/hour.

The University of Washington School of Public Health will be hosting the 26th Annual Conference of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology, on the theme of “ From Local to Global: Advancing Science for Policy in Environmental Health.” This major international scientific conference will include plenary sessions, workshops, and oral and poster presentations of more than 1000 original scientific papers. The meeting will be on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington on August 24-28th, 2014. We want to be able to permit our local students to take advantage of the extraordinary opportunity to attend portions of this meeting.
At this time we are recruiting volunteers to serve on our ISEE 2014 Student Host Committee. There will be a wide variety of duties assigned to volunteers including, but not limited to: assisting with conference registration, helping meeting attendees navigate across campus, serving as break-out session room monitors, assembling hand-out materials for the meeting, assisting with poster session set-up, and other duties as assigned. Volunteers will receive a conference t-shirt, lunches on all days of the meeting, and will be able to attend the conference for free when they are not assigned volunteer duties. (The regular student conference registration rate would be $490.)
We are expecting more than 1000 conference attendees, and registrants already hail from at least 50 countries. Attending this meeting is an unusual opportunity—last year’s meeting was in Switzerland, next year’s will be Brazil, and in 2016 back in Europe.
To join the ISEE 2014 Student Host Committee, please complete the following online form:
While we hope to be able to accommodate as many students as possible, the opportunities will be limited so we will prioritize students who respond by July 21, 2014. For more information on the conference including the preliminary schedule please visit our website: www.isee2014.org .
If you have questions about the ISEE 2014 Student Host Committee please contact Chelsea Ruggiero-Diehl at crd7 .
Volunteer support for this conference is essential and will greatly contribute to the meeting’s success, we hope you will join us in hosting this diverse and international audience and hear about state-of-the-art environmental health and epidemiology research at the University of Washington this August.

I am a recent graduate of Public Health at the UW and a current AmeriCorps member at WithinReach. I will be leaving my AmeriCorps position shortly and was hoping that a SPH student would be interested in filling my spot. I would highly recommend this position to those interested in resolving health inequities through access to health and nutrition.
WithinReach—a statewide non-profit that focuses on health and nutrition resources for low-income families in Washington—is seeking applicants for a 10.5 month AmeriCorps position, where they would serve as part of our growing community outreach team. This position seems to align well with the work of many USPHA students, and we hope to attract students who wish to continue pursuing these interests on the job.
